John Frank Austin (6 July 1933 14 July 2004) was an English professional footballer. He played as a full-back and represented England as a schoolboy. He was born in Stoke-on-Trent.

Frank Austin began his career as a junior with Coventry City, turning professional in July 1950, although he had to wait until the 1952 53 season for his league debut. His career at Coventry spanned over 12 years and he played a total of 302 league games, scoring twice as Coventry rose through the divisions.

In January 1963 he moved to Torquay United, making his debut on 18 March in a 1 0 defeat away to Newport County, but only as a stand-in for George Allen. He had more success the following season, missing only one of the first 23 games before losing his place to Ray Spencer. He left Plainmoor without making any further appearances and joined non-league Chelmsford City.
