Peter Grant (born 30 August 1965 in Bellshill, Scotland) is a former footballer and was, until October 2007, manager of Norwich City. This was Grant's first role in management, but he had previously held coaching jobs at Bournemouth and West Ham United. He is currently first team coach at West Bromwich Albion.

During his playing career, Grant played for Celtic, Norwich City, Reading and Bournemouth. He was awarded a testimonial match against Bayern Munich by Celtic in 1997.

After making 361 appearances for Celtic between 1982 and 1997, Grant signed for Norwich City for a fee of £200,000. Mike Walker, in his second stint as Norwich City manager, had previously tried to sign Grant soon after taking over from Dave Stringer at Carrow Road in 1992 - however, Celtic had been unwilling to let Grant leave, and Walker opted for Gary Megson as a midfielder enforcer.
