John Charles Bird (born 9 June 1948 in Doncaster, England) is an English former footballer and manager.

Bird's transfer from Preston North End to Newcastle United in 1975 prompted the resignation of Preston manager Bobby Charlton. A week later, head coach and caretaker manager Nobby Stiles also resigned, although he returned to the club as manager two years later.
