Gary Smith (born 12 March 1968 in Harlow) is an English former football player. He is currently the head coach of Colorado Rapids in Major League Soccer.
A midfielder with a "hard man" reputation, Smith spent several years playing professionally in the lower divisions of the English Football League with Fulham, Colchester United and Barnet, and several seasons playing non-League football for Enfield, Wycombe Wanderers and Welling United, before injuries forced him into a premature retirement in 1995 at the age of just 27.
Smith began his coaching career with Wimbledon, before moving to Wycombe Wanderers in 2004 to become assistant first team coach. Following the resignation of manager Tony Adams, Smith briefly filled the role of caretaker manager at Wycombe, and the club was unbeaten under his guidance. He was reserve team coach for Watford in 2005, and in 2007 worked as a scout for Arsenal.
