Dave Toub (born June 1, 1962) is an American football coach and former player who is the assistant head coach and special teams coordinator for the Kansas City Chiefs of the National Football League (NFL).
Toub was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in the ninth round of the 1985 NFL Draft. He was released before the start of the regular season. Later, Toub attended the Los Angeles Rams training camp in two consecutive years, but was released before the start of the regular season.
Toub began his coaching career at the University of Texas-El Paso in 1986. His first year was as a graduate assistant; the next two years he was the strength and conditioning coach. Toub then spent nine years as the strength and conditioning coach at the University of Missouri; also coaching offensive line from 1989 to 1991 was Andy Reid. Afterwards, Toub coached the defensive line for three years.
Toub joined the Chicago Bears coaching staff on January 24, 2004, as the special teams coordinator. On February 27, 2007, Toub signed a three-year extension with the Bears, keeping him under contract through the 2009 season. The Bears' special teams unit was highly successful in 2006; kicker Robbie Gould, return specialist Devin Hester, and gunner Brendon Ayanbadejo were voted to the 2007 Pro Bowl. On April 5, 2007, Toub was voted special teams coach of the year by his peers. His special teams unit was ranked at the top of the league for the 2006 and 2007 seasons. For the last eight years, the Bears special teams have been in the top three, and was ranked third by rankings performed by the Dallas Morning News. In 2008 he was elected to the USA Today All-Joe team.
Following the 2012 season, Toub interviewed for the Bears' head coaching position vacated by the firing of Lovie Smith; however, the Bears hired Marc Trestman for the position. Though Trestman and the Bears offered to retain Toub for the upcoming season, on January 15, 2013, Toub announced that he would leave Chicago and accept a position with the Kansas City Chiefs and reunite with Andy Reid. In 2018, he received the assistant head coach title as a complement to his ST coordinator duties. In 2020, Toub won his first Super Bowl when the Chiefs defeated the San Francisco 49ers 31-20 in Super Bowl LIV.
