Edward L. Jackson was an American football coach for several historically black colleges and universities in the Eastern United States. He served as the head football coach at Delaware State University, Johnson C. Smith University and Howard University, altering his tenures among the three schools over the course of 23 years.[1] Only once during his coaching career did a team of his finish with a sub-.500 record, when Delaware State finished 1-3-1 in 1936.

Jackson later went to the Tuskegee Institute, serving as physical education director and vice president of academic affairs.[2] In 1970, he was recognized by the American Association for Health, Physical Education, and Recreation with a Presidential Citation.[3]
