Ludovic (Ludo) Coeck (25 September 1955 9 October 1985) was a Flemish-Belgian footballer who played as left winger or central midfielder. His clubs included Berchem Sport, Anderlecht, Internazionale and Ascoli Calcio. He was capped for the Belgian national team 46 times.

Coeck was a member of the Belgian squad at España 82, where he played in all five of his country's games and scored with a long-range free-kick against El Salvador, and at Euro 84, where he appeared as a substitute in the defeats by France and Denmark.

On 7 October 1985, while he was on his way back to Brussels, after signing for Lierse, Coeck was badly injured when his BMW ploughed into crash barriers near the town of Rumst. He died two days later, at the University of Antwerp Clinic in Edegem.
