Hüseyin Çimşir (born 26 May 1979) is a Turkish football coach and former footballer. He is currently the assistant manager of Osmanlıspor. Çimşir has spent most of his career at Trabzonspor, but has also had short spells at Sakaryaspor and Antalyaspor. He is a Turkish international and was the captain at Trabonspor. He transferred to Bursaspor in 2009–10 season.

His strengths are in his defensive capabilities. He usually plays in the anchor position, covering the defence and attempting to move the ball onto the midfield. He rarely ventures forward, preferring instead to organise and protect the back line. At Trabzonspor he has helped the team to success in the Turkish Cup on two occasions, and to the runners up position in 2004.
