John Doolan (born 10 November 1968) is an English football player and coach.

Born in Liverpool, Doolan played for Wigan Athletic between 1992 and 1996. He was appointed as Wigan's youth team coach in November 2011, following the departure of Dave Watson.[1] In December 2013, Doolan joined the first team coaching staff following the arrival of Uwe Rosler.

In July 2014, he moved to Scottish club Hibernian as first team coach.[2][3] On 1 June 2016, he and Hibs manager Alan Stubbs moved to Rotherham United, however, following a poor run of form, Stubbs was sacked by Rotherham on 19 October 2016 with Doolan also leaving the club.[4]
