Thomas Cochran was an American banker and college football player and coach. He served as the head football coach at the University of Minnesota for the 1894 Golden Gophers season, leading the team to a 3–1 record. He was the second Yale University graduate to coach at Minnesota, following his predecessor, Wallie Winter. The Minnesota football program was suffering financially, so Cochrane delivered lectures titled "Football as Played in the East" at locations around the nation to help raise money.
