Christopher William Gerard "Chris" Hughton (born 11 December 1958 in Stratford, London) is a professional football manager and former player who is currently the manager of Birmingham City F.C.

After making his professional début at age 18, Hughton spent most of his playing career with Tottenham Hotspur as a left back, leaving in 1990 after 13 years. After relatively brief spells with West Ham United and Brentford, Hughton retired from playing in 1993 aged 34. He also earned 53 caps for the Republic of Ireland national team, becoming their first mixed-race international. He started all three games of UEFA Euro 1988 in West Germany.

From 1993 to 2007 Hughton served as a coach and then assistant manager for Tottenham. He joined Newcastle as first team coach in 2008, and following their relegation, Hughton as caretaker manager took charge of their first season in the Championship, before being announced as permanent manager in October 2009. He was sacked as manager by Mike Ashley on 6 December 2010.
