Carl Chang (born February 13, 1969, Hoboken, New Jersey) is the older brother and former coach of the tennis star Michael Chang.

Chang was a talented junior tennis player who beat a number of future professionals, including Pete Sampras, at junior events. He graduated from San Dieguito High School in Encinitas, California, in 1987. He then attended the University of California, Berkeley, on a tennis scholarship and graduated with a business degree in 1991.

Following his graduation, Chang briefly joined the professional tennis tour. After playing in a few events as a singles player as well as a doubles partner of his younger brother Michael, he decided not to continue and instead became Michael's coach – a role he filled until Michael's retirement from the tour in 2003. Carl Chang was named 'Coach of the Year' by Tennis magazine in 1996.[1]
