Bruce Chambers is an American football coach. He currently serves as an assistant to Mack Brown at the University of Texas at Austin. Priorly he served as coach at David W. Carter High School in Dallas, Texas.

Chambers played wide receiver at the University of North Texas under Jerry Moore, Bob Tyler and Corky Nelson. He then became coach at Dallas Carter High School, coaching the freshmen and junior varsity before becoming varsity assistant to Freddie James in 1989. In 1996 Chambers succeeded James as head coach, but chose to leave the school after two seasons for an assistant job at Texas.

In his first five seasons at Texas, Chambers coached three of the nine 1,000-yard rushers (Ricky Williams, 1998 / Hodges Mitchell, 1999–2000 / Cedric Benson, 2001–02) in school history and became the first position coach since Fred Akers (with Roosevelt Leaks and Earl Campbell in '73 and '74-75, respectively) to have two different backs earn first-team all-conference honors in three consecutive seasons (Williams, 1998 / Mitchell, 1999–2000).
