Harvey Paul Johnson (June 22, 1919, Bridgeton, New Jersey – August 8, 1983) was an American football coach. He served two separate stints as the head coach for the Buffalo Bills, first in the American Football League and then in the National Football League. He first took the reins in 1968, when Joe Collier was fired one game into the season. The Bills went 1-10-1 with Johnson at the helm, and was replaced the following year by John Rauch. Johnson returned to his role as the Bills' defensive backfield coach for two seasons before resuming the head coaching post in 1971. After finishing with a 1-13 record that year, Johnson was dismissed. He compiled a record of 2-23-1 in his two seasons. Johnson was also on the Buffalo Bills coaching staff when the Bills won the 1965 AFL Championship game. Johnson continued to work as a scout for the team until his death in 1983.
