Max Andrew Bumgardner (May 13, 1923 – April 12, 2005) was an American football player and coach. After playing college football as an end at the University of Texas at Austin, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in physical education in 1948, he was selected in the first round of the 1948 NFL Draft by the Chicago Bears, but was sent to the Detroit Lions. He played for just one season in the National Football League (NFL), with the Lions.
Bumgardner began his coaching career in 1949 at Denison High School in Denison, Texas, where he worked as an assistant under head football coach Les Cranfill. In 1950, he was hired as the head football coach and athletic director at San Angelo College—now known as Angelo State University—in San Angelo, Texas. Bumgardner remained in that post until he resigned in 1968, after the school had become a four-year college and was renamed as Angelo State College.
