Ahmet Suat Özyazıcı (born 1 January 1936 in Trabzon) is a Turkish former footballer and a successful manager.

Özyazıcı played football at the club İdmanocağı in his hometown Trabzon for several years. Following his retirement, he became a manager. In the 1975 76 season, he led Trabzonspor to its first league championship title. This was the first time, a team besides the Istanbul clubs Fenerbahçe SK, Galatasaray SK, and Beşiktaş JK (called the "Big Three") to win the Turkish Super League. Further titles came with Ozyazici in the seasons 1976 77, 1978 79 and 1979 80. Trabzonspor remained until 2010 the only team to win the league title besides the "Big Three".

Özyazici's Trabzonspor showed success in the UEFA Champions League by beating English giant Liverpool FC in the late 1970s. After his successful years at Trabzonspor, he left his post to manage Bursaspor, Sarıyer, Vanspor and Sarıyer G.K. (Istanbul). He is considered as one of the most successful managers in the history of Turkish football gaining four Turkish Super League titles, a performance reached by Fatih Terim only. He has won three Turkish Cups and several other cups, all achieved with Trabzonspor.

Ozyazici now lives in Trabzon.
