Kenneth Allen Shipp (February 3, 1929 - March 5, 2012) was an American college and professional football coach. He served as an offensive coordinator and receivers coach in the National Football League and briefly as the head coach of the New York Jets during the 1975 season. He assumed the job after the firing of Charley Winner, who was 2-7 on the season. The team was 1-4 under Shipp.
Shipp was noted for his sense of humor as an NFL coach. He had stints at Trinity, Florida State, Tulsa, South Carolina and Miami before entering the NFL, where he had positions with St. Louis and New Orleans.Archie Manning, whom Shipp coached in New Orleans, describes him as "a smart man and a good coach." A 1947 graduate of Middle Tennessee State University, he is the namesake of the Ken Shipp Endowed Scholarship at his alma mater as well as the Ken Shipp Scholarship Fund of the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.
