Orlando "Tubby" Smith (born June 30, 1951) is an American college basketball coach. He is currently the men's basketball head coach at the University of Minnesota. Smith previously served in the same role at the University of Tulsa, the University of Georgia, and most recently, University of Kentucky, where he coached the Wildcats to the 1998 NCAA championship.

Over his 18 seasons as a head coach, Smith has had 16 twenty-win seasons. In 2005, he joined Roy Williams, Nolan Richardson, Denny Crum and Jim Boeheim as the only head coaches to win 365 games in 15 seasons or less. Entering the 2007 season, Smith's career record was 387-145 and his .733 winning percentage was eighth among active coaches. With Minnesota's invite to the 2009 NCAA tournament, Smith became the fifth coach to lead four different teams to the NCAA tournament.

Smith's three sons are following in their father's coaching footsteps. "G. G." Smith, who played for his father at the University of Georgia, is currently an assistant coach at Loyola University Maryland. Middle son Saul Smith, who played for his father at the University of Kentucky, has joined his father as an assistant coach at the University of Minnesota. Brian, his youngest son, was a point guard at Ole Miss and is an assistant coach at Windermere preparatory school.
