Ilijas Pašić (10 May 1934 – 2 February 2015) was a Yugoslav football player and manager.

He started playing football at Romanija, but at the age of 18 he made a move to FK Željezničar. He played more than 250 games for the club as a left winger (174 of them were official games) and he scored almost 200 goals (104 in official matches). That makes him one of the best goalscorers in history of the club.

In 1954. he made a debut for Yugoslav national team. That made him first player from FK Željezničar to do so. In total, he collected 8 caps. He also scored one goal (it was on his debut). He was a part of 1958 FIFA World Cup Yugoslav squad. He was also a member of Under-21 national team and B national team (18 games, 12 goals).

He made a move to Dinamo Zagreb in 1959 for which he played 95 games, scoring 31 goals in period of three seasons. Unfortunately, injury stopped his career to rise even more. He later played in Austria and Switzerland.

He worked as a coach in Switzerland.[1] He was a head coach in NK Rijeka and BSK Slavonski Brod, before he returned to Switzerland once more.
