This is a list of FA Cup winning football managers.

George Ramsay won the tournament on six occasions, leading Aston Villa to success in the 1887, 1895, 1897, 1905, 1913, and 1920 FA Cup Finals; three other managers have won the title on five occasions.

Scottish manager Thomas Mitchell led Blackburn Rovers to success three seasons in a row in 1884, 1885 and 1886.

15 men have won the tournament both as a player and as a manager, namely John Cameron as player-manager in 1901, Peter McWilliam, Billy Walker, Jimmy Seed, Matt Busby, Stan Seymour, Joe Smith, Bill Shankly, Joe Mercer (won it twice as a player, with two different clubs - 1st Everton and then Arsenal), Don Revie, Bob Stokoe, Kenny Dalglish, Bobby Gould, Terry Venables, George Graham, Gianluca Vialli and Roberto Di Matteo. Cameron and Dalglish are the only two people who have guided their clubs to the title as player-managers, in 1901 and 1986 respectively.

Two managers have won the title with two different sides: Billy Walker with Sheffield Wednesday in 1935 and Nottingham Forest in 1959 and Herbert Chapman with Huddersfield Town in 1922 and Arsenal 1930.
