Franck Rolling (born August 23, 1968 in Colmar) is a French former football defender.

Rolling began his career as an attacking player at RC Strasbourg, making his debut in a game against Sporting Club Toulon on October 15, 1988. However Rolling did not manage to carve out a regular first team place and so dropped down a division in 1992 to join Pau FC. He moved to Scotland with Ayr United F.C. in 1994 and was spotted there by Leicester City F.C. who brought him to England the following year for a fee of £100,000. Rolling found it hard to get a spot in the Foxes first team, particularly after their promotion to the Premier League. He departed Filbert Street in 1997 to join A.F.C. Bournemouth and made something of a name for himself at the club by scoring two goals in the two-leg Auto Windscreens Shield Southern Final, booking the club a place at the Wembley showpiece. He was an unused substitute for the final (1-2 defeat vs. Grimsby), after which his relationship with the manager had irretrievably broken down.

After his release from Bournemouth, Rolling was briefly on the books of Gillingham F.C. and Wycombe Wanderers F.C., before leaving England to try his luck with SK Vorwärts Steyr of Austria (who went into bankruptcy during the season) and Veria F.C. of Greece. He returned to France in 2001 to play for Jura Sud Lavans, retiring the following year.
