Pitso 'Jingles' Mosimane (born 26 July 1964, Kagiso) is a South African football former player and coach and current manager of Mamelodi Sundows in the Premier Soccer League.

Mosimane is one of the longest serving and highly rated coaches in South African soccer, having won several major trophies with SuperSport United between 2001 and 2007.

He served as the care-taker coach of South Africa for seven games during 2007, before Carlos Alberto Parreira was appointed as head coach. He then served as an assistant coach to Parreira, and Joel Santana with South Africa.

On 15 July 2010, Mosimane was named as the new head coach of South Africa. He had been an assistant to former coach Carlos Alberto Parreira at the 2010 FIFA World Cup, and was handed a four-year contract.

He won his first game in charge in a 1–0 win over World Cup Quarter Finalists Ghana. South Africa failed to qualify for the 2012 African Cup of Nations after Mosimane mistakenly played for a draw in the final qualifier, when in fact a victory was required.

He won the 2016 CAF Champions League with Mamelodi Sundowns after defeating Egypt's Zamalek 3-1 on aggregate.

In December 2016, Mosimane was ranked as the 10th best coach in the world for 2016, according to the International Federation of Football History and Statistics (IFFHS).

On 5 January 2017, Mosimane won the Coach of the Year accolade at the 2016 Glo-CAF awards in Abuja, Nigeria after guiding Mamelodi Sundowns to league glory in 2015/16 and claiming the Telkom Knockout trophy which meant Mosimane stood alone as the only coach to have made a clean sweep of all domestic trophies in the PSL era.
