William Thomas Garbutt (9 January 1883 24 February 1964) born in Hazel Grove, Stockport, most commonly known as Willy Garbutt was an English football player, and later a prominent coaching figure in Italian and Spanish football after his retirement. Although his achievements are not widely known in his home country, Garbutt was the model for professional managers in Italy.

Garbutt laid the foundations of skilled coaching in Italian football; winning three league championships with Genoa CFC, he also managed S.S.C. Napoli for a period and was the first ever manager of A.S. Roma. Garbutt also had success in Spain where he coached Atletico Bilbao to victory in La Liga.
