Graham James Arnold (born 3 August 1963 in Sydney, New South Wales) is a former coach of the Australian national football (soccer) team. He was appointed to work as an assistant to Frank Farina in 2000. The two replaced Raul Blanco, who was the interim coach in charge after Terry Venables decided not to renew his contract with Soccer Australia after the failed World Cup campaign in 1997. Although Farina was sacked in 2005, Arnold and the rest of the coaching team survived and worked with coach Guus Hiddink for the Australian 2006 FIFA World Cup campaign, in which they made the second round of the finals. After Hiddink left, he became acting coach of the Socceroos. He is a member of the Football Federation Australia Football Hall of Fame.

Arnold Place in the Sydney suburb of Glenwood is named for him.
