Carl Hoddle (8 March 1967 – 2 March 2008) was an English football player and coach.

The younger brother of England international Glenn Hoddle, Carl began his career with Tottenham Hotspur in 1984. After five years he moved to Leyton Orient, where he played 29 times,[1] before ending his playing career at Barnet in 1995 after 100 appearances. He also had a spell with Conference National side Woking. One notable game he played for the Bees was in the FA Cup against Chelsea in 1994, who were at the time managed by his older brother. He later worked in the used car trade and as a pub landlord before joining his older brother as a coach and scout at Wolverhampton Wanderers between 2004 and 2006.[2][3] He died on 2 March 2008 after he was found collapsed in his home from what was initially suspected to be a heart attack but later confirmed as a brain aneurysm.[4][5]
