Joe Bernard (born 1963) is an American college football coach. He currently serves as the offensive coordinator for Albany.

Bernard is from Parsippany-Troy Hills, New Jersey. He earned a degree in accounting at Moravian College, where he graduated in 1985. He then earned his master's degree in mathematics from East Stroudsburg University in 1988. As of Fall 2009, Bernard lives in Castle Shannon, Pennsylvania.

Coaching

He served as Fairfield football program's second-ever (and final) head coach behind his mentor, Kevin Kiesel. Bernard was the Stags' head coach for the 2001 and 2002 seasons – the final two years before Fairfield abandoned its football program.

He moved on to become defensive coordinator at Duquesne in 2003. He then served as coordinator until February 2005, at which point he was also promoted as interim head coach due to former head coach Greg Gattuso's decision to leave and coach at Pitt. Bernard served simultaneously as the head coach and defensive coordinator of the Dukes for two months, at which time he was relieved of head coaching duties by Jerry Schmidt. In 2009, Bernard left Duquesne to take a position with the Pittsburgh Panthers as a coaching consultant.
