Graeme Anthony Jones (born 13 March 1970) is a retired English professional footballer and current football coach. He is currently first assistant coach of the Belgium national team under Roberto Martínez.
Born in Gateshead, Jones began his career in 1991 with North Shields, then moving to Bridlington Town in 1992, before earning a £10,000 move to Doncaster Rovers. He then joined Wigan Athletic in 1996, after scoring 30 goals in 3 years at Doncaster. He became an instant success with the Latics, scoring 31 league goals in his first season, which remains a Wigan record to this day. He also got a total of 4 hat-tricks this season. Jones went on to score 18 goals in the next two seasons, before joining Scottish side St Johnstone, on a £100,000 deal.
Jones scored on his debut for St Johnstone, but his time with Saints was disrupted by injury. He returned to England in 2002 to sign for Southend United. He joined Boston United in 2003, before signing for Bury in 2004, where he scored on his debut against Yeovil Town.
He also had injury problems at Bury, and after only 3 appearances in 6 months, he returned to Scotland to join Clyde. After scoring the winning goal on his debut, he found the net on one more occasion for the Bully Wee, before he joined Hamilton Academical in July 2006. Jones was forced to retire in March 2006 due to injury, and became assistant manager at Accies.
Jones joined Swansea City in March 2007 as assistant manager to Roberto Martínez. He followed Martínez to Wigan Athletic in June 2009, before joining him at Everton in July 2013. In August 2016, Jones was announced as Martínez's assistant coach at the Belgium national football team, along with former Arsenal player Thierry Henry.
