Marijan Novak was a Croatian football forward who is mainly known for his time at Dinamo Zagreb (1964 1972) and his contribution to the club's triumph in the 1966 67 Inter-Cities Fairs Cup.

Novak spent his youth years at NK Trešnjevka, before signing for Dinamo Zagreb in 1964. He played for Dinamo until 1972 and helped the club win the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup in 1967 and Yugoslav Cup in 1969. Although the club never won the Yugoslav First League during his time there, Dinamo finished as league runners-up three times (1966, 1967, 1969) as well as finishing as cup runners-up twice (1966 and 1972). Overall, Novak scored a total of 118 goals in 312 appearances during his time at Dinamo.

After leaving Dinamo in late 1972 he joined German second level side VfR Heilbronn where he stayed for a single season before moving to another German second level outfit TSV 1860 München in 1973. After two seasons at Munich and only 3 goals from 19 appearances Novak retired in 1975.

Following Dinamo's successful Inter-Cities Fairs Cup campaign, Novak was also called up and appeared for Yugoslavia in a friendly against Netherlands on 1 November 1967, but never appeared for the national team again.
