Stephen James "Steve" Coppell (born 9 July 1955) is a former English footballer who is currently the head coach of the Kerala Blasters of the Indian Super League.

As a player, he was a highly regarded right winger known for his speed and work rate. He won domestic honours with Manchester United and represented England at the World Cup. After a knee injury ended his playing career, he went into management.

He has managed Bristol City, Brighton & Hove Albion, Manchester City, Brentford and most notably Crystal Palace and Reading, both of which he took from the English second tier to achieve each club's greatest-ever successes in the top flight. He is also credited with discovering players such as Ian Wright, a striker he signed from non-league football, and who became a household name and international footballer.

Coppell has a degree in economics which he gained at Liverpool University while playing for Manchester United.
