Hans-Peter Zaugg, (born 2 December 1952), is a former Swiss footballer and the current manager of FC Solothurn. He is often referred to by his nickname, "Bidu."

After a playing career which saw him make stops at FC Rot-Weiss Bümpliz, Neuchâtel Xamax and FC Bern, Zaugg took up coaching. Until 1990, Zaugg coached at various Swiss clubs, when he became a youth coach in the Swiss Football Association. Two years later, Zaugg also joined the Swiss senior team as an assistant coach, a position he held until 1999, when he became caretaker of the national side, following Gilbert Gress' resignation in a dispute over salary. From 2000-2005, Zaugg then coached at Grasshopper-Club Zurich, FC Luzern and BSC Young Boys. In December 2006, Zaugg was named manager of the Liechtenstein national football team succeeding Martin Andermatt.[1]

Zaugg and the LFV cancelled the contract in a mutual agreement by 31. December 2012.
