Coleman Regis "Coley" McDonough (October 10, 1915 – July 5, 1965) was a professional American football quarterback in the National Football League. He played four seasons for the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Chicago Cardinals. In 1944 McDonough also played for "Card-Pitt", a team that was the result of a temporary merger between the Cardinals and the Steelers. The teams' merger was result of the manning shortages experienced league-wide due to World War II. Six days before the team's second game of the season, McDonough was drafted into the United States Army.

On July 5, 1965, Coley was shot and killed in the line of duty, when he and another officer answered a disturbance call. .
