Frank Stephen Bunn (born 6 November 1962 in Birmingham) Bunn was a striker who began his career at Luton Town, and later played for Hull City and Oldham Athletic. His most famous moment as a player came on 25 October 1989, when he scored six goals in Oldham's 7 0 victory over Scarborough in the third round of the League Cup, which is still the League Cup record for most goals by a player in a single match.

In 1990, Bunn was forced to retire from professional football because of injury. He then joined Stalybridge Celtic and later Radcliffe Borough. He later became a coach and began his coaching career at Wigan Athletic, before joining Manchester City as reserve team coach in 1998. In February 2007, Bunn was appointed first-team coach at Coventry City, and on 11 February 2008, he was named joint caretaker manager of the Sky Blues along with John Harbin, following the sacking of Iain Dowie. He returned to his old position as first-team coach following Chris Coleman's appointment as manager.

Paul Scholes described Bunn as his favourite footballer of all time, in an interview at the 2002 World Cup.

In June 2011 Bunn was confirmed to be Steve Eyre's assistant manager at Rochdale A.F.C
