James Francis "Jimmy" Lanagan (c. 1879 – August 7, 1937) was an American football, rugby, and baseball coach at Stanford University.

Lanagan played college baseball at Stanford from 1897 to 1900.[1] In 1903, despite never having played football, Lanagan was selected as Stanford's head football coach, and coached the team for three years, compiling an overall record of 23–2–4.[1]

Following the 1905 season, Stanford, responding like other American universities to concerns about the violence in football, dropped football in favor of rugby.[2][3] Despite having no knowledge of the sport, Lanagan was retained as the rugby coach, spending time in Vancouver, British Columbia to study the sport.[1] In his first season, the team ended with a 6–2–1 season. Lanagan remained as rugby coach for two more seasons.[1] He also served as Stanford's baseball coach from 1906 to 1907.[1][4]
