Dieter Müller (born Dieter Kaster on 1 April 1954) is a former German footballer, who is currently the chairman of Kickers Offenbach.

He appeared in twelve senior matches, scoring nine goals for Germany. He played in the 1976 European Football Championship (in the final of which he scored) and the 1978 FIFA World Cup. In his spell with 1. FC Köln he set a record for the most goals scored by a player in a single Bundesliga match. On 17 August 1977, he contributed six goals (scoring in the 12th, 23rd, 32nd, 52nd, 73rd and in the 85th minute) to Köln's 7 2 victory over Werder Bremen in front of a crowd of 19,000 at Köln's Müngersdorfer Stadion. But since the cameramen were on strike on this day, there are no TV-recordings of Müller's goals. He was crowned Bundesliga topscorer that season (24 goals in 33 games), just like the season before (34 goals in 34 appearances).

He is the son of Heinz Kaster, who played as a defender for FC St.Pauli Hamburg and Kickers Offenbach in the early 1950s. The striker had already been a schoolboy international, when his stepfather's adoption turned his surname into Müller.
