Daniel Richard "Danny" Coles (born 31 October 1981 in Bristol is an English footballer who plays as a defender for Football League One side Exeter City. He joined Bristol Rovers in Football League One on an initial 3 month loan period, beginning 1 November 2007, from Championship side Hull City. The move became permanent on 8 January 2008 when he signed a two-and-a-half year contract for The Pirates. On 12 August 2008 he ended speculation about his future by signing a new two-year contract extension.

Coles started his career at Bristol City, where he played 148 games and was named their Young Player Of The Year in 2002 03. While at City, he was arrested and charged in July 2005 for being drunk and disorderly during a pre-season trip.

He was signed for Hull City on 26 July 2005 by then manager Peter Taylor for a fee of £200,000. After a promising start to his Hull City career, Coles suffered a knee injury which ruled him out for the remainder of the 2005 06 season. Struggling to break into Hull's first team following his injury, on 1 October 2007 he signed for League One side Hartlepool United on a one month loan deal, eventually moving on to Rovers.

Coles injured his knee in the home game against Leyton Orient in October 2008, and it took many months for successful rehabilitation. This cost him the rest of the season. He spent some time undergoing a rehabilitation prgramme in the USA, which significantly sped up his recovery. He has now returned to training with the squad and is being eased back into first team action.

On 11 June 2011 it was announced that Coles had signed a two-year contract with Exeter City.
