John Hughes (born 9 September 1964 in Edinburgh) is a Scottish former professional footballer.

Towards the end of his playing career, Hughes took on coaching responsibilities, and was appointed manager of Falkirk in 2003 (initially as co-manager with Owen Coyle). Hughes guided Falkirk to promotion to the Scottish Premier League and a Scottish Cup Final during his time in charge. Hughes left Falkirk to take up the managerial role at Hibernian in 2009, but left by mutual consent after just 16 months in charge.
