Greg Hutchison (born 13 June 1957) is a former Australian rules footballer who played with and coached Melbourne in the AFL.

Originally from Chelsea Football Club, Hutchinson made his senior VFL debut in 1975 and appeared sporadically for the Demons until the early 1980s. Much of his football was played in the reserves but he managed 96 senior games, as a utility.

From 1986 to 1989, Hutchison coached in the VFA with Prahran, steering them to the 1987 second division premiership and in 1997 was put in charge of Melbourne after their coach Neil Balme was sacked mid-season. His side won three of the 13 games that he coached that year and when he wasn't reappointed to the position the following season he joined Richmond as an assistant coach. In 2008 he was announced as the coach of the Casey Scorpions. He currently holds the position of Football Manager at the St Kilda Football Club. He was the last former player to coach Melbourne until Todd Viney took over as an interim coach in 2011.
