Hans-Peter Briegel (born 11 October 1955 in Rodenbach, West Germany) is a former German football player and manager.

One of the most popular players in his days, Hans-Peter Briegel's original sport was athletics, being successful in various events such as long jump (personal best: 7 metres 50 cm), triple jump and specifically in heptathlon-forerunner pentathlon. Briegel gained his best result as an athlete in Decathlon, but the son of a farmer struggled to compete properly in javelin throw and the high jump. So at the age of 17 he left athletics behind him, playing club football with hometown side SV Rodenbach near Kaiserslautern.
