This is a list of Cambridge United managers since the 1970/71 season and the club's inception into the Football League. The club had 15 permanent managers as a League club until it was relegated to the Football Conference in 2005, as well as three who took the role on a caretaker basis. Only John Beck has held the role more than once, including a spell from 1990 to 1992 which is generally considered one of the most successful in the club's history.

Following the decision of Jez George to return to his role as Director of Football on 4 October 2012, Richard Money, former manager of Luton Town F.C., was appointed as the current head coach.[1]
