Coyle is a town in Logan County, Oklahoma, United States. The population was 325 at the 2010 census, compared to the figure of 337 in 2000. It is part of the Oklahoma City Metropolitan Statistical Area. The town was named for William Coyle, an influential Guthrie business man.

Founded in Oklahoma Territory before statehood, Coyle initially prospered as an agricultural town and because of the arrival of the railroad. However, the demand for the area's principal crop, cotton, declined sharply after World War I. Rail service ended during the 1950s. By 2000, it was estimated that 95 percent of the employed residents commuted to work in larger towns nearby.
