Mike Duhaney (born April 5, 1974, in San Diego, California) is a retired American soccer player who played in Major League Soccer (MLS) and the German third division. He was the 1997 Major League Soccer Rookie of the Year.

Duhaney played college soccer at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas from 1992 to 1994, where he was named first-team All-Conference in 1994. Upon graduating in 1994, he spent all of 1995 training full-time with the U.S. U-23 Olympic team. He also played four games for the U.S. team at the 1995 Pan American Games.

Duhaney was selected eighty-seventh overall in the 1996 MLS Inaugural Player Draft by the Tampa Bay Mutiny. He lost the entire 1996 season due to a knee injury. In 1997, he came on strong, seized the Mutiny's left back position and started twenty-five games, earning MLS Rookie of the Year. In June 1998, Duhaney was traded midway into the next season to the MetroStars in exchange for Paul Dougherty after the MetroStars backline was decimated by injuries. Although he saw a good deal of playing time with the Metros, he never settled in, and on January 28, 2000, was traded to the Columbus Crew in exchange for Thomas Dooley. Duhaney stayed in Columbus for two years, starting thirty-nine games for the team, before being released after the 2001 season. In 2002, Duhaney signed with German second division team 1. FSV Mainz 05. He did not make a first-team appearance until February 2003, and was released at the end of the season.
