Darrell Fullington (born April 17, 1964 in New Smyrna Beach, Florida) is a former American football free safety.

Fullington was drafted fifth round out of the University of Miami to the Minnesota Vikings in 1988. Darrell was also with the New England Patriots, waived by them in September 1991 and eventually claimed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He started for most of the 1992 season, having been primarily a nickel back and special teamer under Bucs coach Richard Williamson.

Fullington's name is synonymous with that of all-time University of Maryland quarterback Frank Reich, in the November 10, 1984 game with Miami and Maryland. Frank Reich produced what was then the greatest comeback in college football history as Maryland rallied from a 31-0 deficit to beat defending national champion Miami, 42-40.

Fullington is also a celebrity participant in the annual Regency Homes MDA Celebrity Golf Classic held for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. He is also an assistant football coach at Miami Jackson High School in Miami, Florida.

He is now the head coach of the Weston Warriors.
