Douglas Lawrence Gott (born 30 June 1950 in Melbourne) is a former Australian sportsman who played Australian rules football for Collingwood in the VFL and cricket for Victoria.

A left footed defender, Gott also played several games as a centre half forward. He played in the drawn 1977 VFL Grand Final but didn't appear in the replay due to a cracked kneecap. It turned out to be a career-ending injury and he never managed another senior game.

Gott was also a talented cricketer and played in four first-class matches for Victoria in the 1973/74 summer and took nine wickets.
