Stanley Atwood Boles (1887 – December 4, 1961) was the athletic director of the University of Kentucky from 1917 through 1933. He also served as head coach of the Kentucky Wildcats football and Kentucky Wildcats men's basketball teams for one season each. He was responsible for hiring legendary men's basketball coach Adolph Rupp at Kentucky.

He was the Kentucky Wildcats football coach in 1917, compiling a 3-5-1 record. He also served as Kentucky's basketball coach in 1918, compiling a 9-2-1 record. The rare basketball tie, against Kentucky Wesleyan College, was because of a scorer's error that was not discovered until after the game had ended and both teams had departed.

His brother Ewing T. Boles was a noted businessman and philanthropist.
