Carl Reese is an American football coach. Regarded as a defensive mastermind, Reese served as defensive coordinator for 31 years at six different schools and one USFL team. Following the 2003 season, Reese retired from coaching. In 2009, he accepted the defensive cooordinator position at Miami (Ohio), under new head coach Michael Haywood.

While at Texas, Reese inherited a defense that ranked 104th nationally in rushing (241.5 ypg) and 85th nationally in total defense (399.2 ypg) in 1997 and turned it into a unit that produced five straight top 25 total defense finishes. Texas' NCAA-leading 236.2 yards per game allowed in 2001 was the Horns' lowest since 1983 (212.0 ypg). UT ranked sixth nationally in total defense in 1999 (286.7 ypg), seventh in 2000 (278.3 ypg) and 16th in 2002 (307.7 ypg).
