The 1924 Detroit Titans football team represented the University of Detroit as an independent during the 1924 college football season. The Titans compiled a 4–5 record and were outscored by opponents by a combined total of 120 to 94.

After retiring as the University of Detroit's head football coach at the end of the 1922 season, James F. Duffy began a law practice. In March 1924, Durfy agreed to return for one year in his old position.[1] Duffy's assistant coaches in 1924 were Steamer Horning (line coach), John Barrett, and Dutch Lauer.[2] Tom Maher was the team captain.[3]

The 1924 season was the program's first with a losing record since the war-shortened 1918 season.
