Mark Craig Smith (born 21 March 1960) is an English former professional footballer who is now a youth team coach at Chesterfield.

An England under-21 international, he posted 510 league appearances in a seventeen-year career in the Football League. He spent the first ten years of his career at Sheffield Wednesday, and by the time he left for Plymouth Argyle in 1987 he had made 282 league appearances for Wednesday. During his time in Sheffield, Wednesday twice won promotion and twice appeared in the FA Cup semi-finals. He switched to Barnsley in 1990, before he signed with Notts County in 1992. He was loaned out to Port Vale, Huddersfield Town and Chesterfield, before he finished his career at Lincoln City in 1994. He then began work as a coach at various clubs, which included a one-game stint in charge of Sheffield Wednesday in 2004, in a caretaker manager capacity. He then returned to coaching, and also worked as caretaker-manager of Chesterfield in November 2015.
