William L. McCauley was the third head coach of the University of Michigan football team. He served as head coach for two seasons, 1894 and 1895, and led the Wolverines to a record of 17–2-–(.875). McCauley was a medical student at Michigan while he served as the coach of the football team. In his two seasons as head coach, the Wolverines lost only two games, once to Cornell and once to Harvard. In 1894, the Wolverines defeated Cornell, 12–4, the first time that a "western school" had beaten one of the established eastern football powers. Before coming to Michigan to attend medical school, McCauley graduated from Princeton in 1894 and played tackle on Princeton's championship team. He also served as an assistant to his successor as Michigan's coach, William Ward, during the 1896 season.
