Jimmy Sharpe (born October 31, 1939) is a former American football player and coach. He served as the head football coach at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University from 1974 to 1977. He was also an assistant coach at the University of Alabama, under Bear Bryant, and at Mississippi State University. Sharpe graduated Montgomery's Sidney Lanier High School and, in 1974, from the University of Alabama.

Virginia Tech

Sharpe, an 11-year veteran of Bear Bryant's Alabama coaching staff, was hired by the Hokies in 1974 to replace Charlie Coffey, who had been let go following a lackluster performance. He was dismissed in 1977 following a disappointing 3–7–1 season.
