William Charles Malley (c. 1868 – June 17, 1908) was an American football player and coach. He played college football for the University of Michigan from 1888 to 1890 and served as the head football coach to Wabash College in 1892.
A native of Chicago, Illinois, Malley played tackle and guard for the University of Michigan Wolverines football teams from 1888 to 1890. He was the captain of the 1890 team that finished with a 4–1 record.
Malley graduated from Michigan's law department in 1891 and became employed with the law firm of Moran, Kraus & Mayer. He later went into partnership with Edwin W. Sims, who became the U.S. Attorney in Chicago. His father John O'Malley built the first packing house in Chicago. Malley later became an election commissioner in Chicago. In December 1907, the Chicago Daily Tribune reported that Malley, at age 39, was said to be "hopelessly insane." Family difficulties relating to an unhappy marriage were reported to have resulted in a breakdown. He died six months later at age 40.
