Noel Mugavin (born 28 June 1956 in Warrnambool) is a former Australian rules footballer who played with Fitzroy and Richmond in the Victorian Football League (VFL).

Mugavin starred as a junior, catching the eyes of VFL scouts at an early age. His flowing locks became a trademark throughout his famous career to complement his silky skills.

Mugavin's stellar career was cut short when he suffered a terrible spleen injury in 1982 prompting him to retire from the highest level. Mugavin returned to the Hampden Football League in a coaching role.

He currently teaches and mentors South Warrnambool Football Club students at Emmanuel College Warrnambool.

His nephew is Brisbane Lions centre half forward Jonathan Brown and his youngest son Jamie, plies his trade at an amateur level in Melbourne.
