John H. (Jack) Wallace was an American football coach. He was a running back and end for the Rutgers Scarlet Knights football team in 1915-18 (on the same team as Paul Robeson) and became Rutgers' head coach from 1924 to 1926. In his first season, the team went 7-1-1 and Wallace was signed to a three-year contract. But over the next two years the team's fortunes sagged, and in February, 1927, the Rutgers University Athletic Board replaced Wallace. His overall record was 12–14–1 in three seasons. In March 1928, Wallace hired a former Bergen County prosecutor to pursue a legal claim that the university had violated the terms of the three-year contract.
