Frederick Thomas Dawson (April 26, 1884 – August 18, 1965) was an American football, basketball, and baseball coach. He served as the head football coach at Columbia University (1918–1919), the University of Nebraska (1921–1924), the University of Denver (1925–1928), and the University of Virginia (1931–1933). Dawson also coached the basketball team at Columbia during the 1918–1919 season and baseball at Princeton University in 1918 and at Columbia in 1919.
Dawson was born to Sylvester and Elizabeth Peers Dawson, the 11th of 12 children. Dawson was a 1910 graduate of Princeton University.
Health problems eventually forced Dawson to leave the coaching field. After retiring from coaching, he became an industrial psychologist and a well known public speaker. Dawson died on August 18, 1965 at a hospital in Omaha, Nebraska.
