The 1936 All-Pacific Coast football team consists of American football players chosen by various organizations for All-Pacific Coast teams for the 1936 college football season.

The 1936 Washington Huskies football team won the Pacific Coast Conference championship with a 7-2-1 record, finished the season ranked #5 in the country, and had four players who were selected to the All-Pacific Coast first team. The Washington honorees were halfbacks Byron Haines and Jimmy Cain, tackle Chuck Bond, and guard Max Starcevich.[1][2][3]

The Santa Clara Broncos were "the only undefeated, untied team in the country" in 1936,[1] were ranked #6 in the final AP Poll, and then defeated the #2-ranked LSU in the 1937 Sugar Bowl. Santa Clara landed two players on one or more of the All-Pacific Coast teams. Fullback Nello Falaschi was a first-team selection by the INS and UP and was later inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame. Guard Dick Bassi was a first-team pick by the AP, INS and UP.[1][2][3]
