James Frank Kenly, Jr. (April 18, 1877 – February 21, 1944) was an American engineer and college football coach. He coached the Maryland Agricultural College (now the University of Maryland) in 1898, where he amassed a 2–5–1 record.
Kenly was born in
Harford County near Level, Maryland on April 18, 1877.  He enrolled at the Maryland Agricultural College in 1895,  and played on the  football team from 1896 to 1898 as a quarterback. In 1898, he served as the team's head coach and captain,  and Maryland amassed a 2–5–1 record.  After the season, the  Reveille yearbook wrote, "Manager McCandlish and Captain Kenly worked faithfully with the material they had, but the team was deficient in weight as compared with the others of the league." He graduated from the Maryland Agricultural College in 1899 with a degree in  mechanical engineering.  Kenly worked for the Port Chester Bolt and Nut Company,  Baldwin Locomotive Works, York Safe and Lock Company, H. S. Kerbaugh, Inc., American Bridge Company, Pennsylvania Steel Company, and the Carnegie Steel Company.
He was married to Mavourneen (née Williams) Kenly.
