Clint Dolezel (born March 25, 1970) is a retired American football quarterback and current head coach of the Philadelphia Soul of the Arena Football League. His debut in the league came with the Milwaukee Mustangs in 1995 as a back-up to Todd Hammel. He would begin starting duties for the expansion Texas Terror, and eventual Houston Thunderbears years to follow. Dolezel would play for three more teams over the course of his playing career, most notably winning ArenaBowl XV with the Grand Rapids Rampage in 2001. He retired after the 2008 season with a then-AFL record of 931 career touchdown passes. Dolezel was inducted into the AFL Hall of Fame in 2012.

After his quarterbacking days ended, Dolezel continued with the sport as offensive coordinator for the Florida Firecats of the af2 in 2009. After a brief stint as head coach in the Indoor Football League in 2010, Dolezel returned to the AFL as head coach of the Dallas Vigilantes in 2011, with the team folding later in the year. He would make his home in Philadelphia as offensive coordinator for the Philadelphia Soul in 2012 before eventually becoming the head coach in 2013. Since then, Dolezel has been one of the most successful head coaches in recent years, winning ArenaBowls XXIX and XXX and posting zero losing seasons.
