Branko Karačić (born 24 September 1960) is a Croatian retired footballer and football manager.

Karačić turned professional in 1981 and spent the following six years with NK Osijek, where he appeared in a total of 300 matches for the club. He then moved to Croatian powerhouse Hajduk Split for whom he played between 1987 and 1989, after which he moved abroad and played for Cercle Brugge (1989 1993), Gent (1994 1995) and Saint-Gilloise (1996 1997) in Belgium and FC Linz (1995 1996) in Austria.

During his playing career, Karačić was feared for his passing and free kick abilities and was known as an excellent playmaker. After retiring from active football he first held the post of director of football at NK Osijek (1997 1998) and then, after gaining his coaching diploma, went on to coach a number of Prva HNL teams. His first coaching job was assisting Ivo Šušak at NK Zagreb (1999 2000) before taking over himself in the 2000 01 season. He then went on to coach Marsonia (2002 03), Osijek (2003 04), Slaven Belupo (2004 05), Cibalia (2005 06), Slavonac CO (2007 09), Šibenik (2009 10) and again Osijek (2010 11).
