Clarence Lamar McHan (December 16, 1932 – November 23, 1998) was an American professional football quarterback in the National Football League. McHan played football collegiately at the University of Arkansas. He was ninth in the 1953 Heisman Trophy balloting. He was born in Lake Village, Arkansas.

McHan played for the Green Bay Packers from 1959 to 1960. During the 1959 season, McHan was pulled as the starting quarterback by first-year coach Vince Lombardi due to knee injury.
