Howard Wilkinson (born 13 November 1943) is an English former footballer and manager, and has recently stepped down as a non-executive Director at Sheffield Wednesday after previously relinquishing the chairman role to Milan Mandaric.

Despite having a low-profile playing career, Wilkinson embarked on a successful managerial career. He won the First Division championship in 1992 with Leeds United, the final season before the creation of the Premier League. To date, he remains the last English manager to win the top-flight league in England. He later had two spells as caretaker manager of the English national team.

His son Ben is a professional footballer, who most recently played for Boston United but is now unattached after being released from Boston.
