Milorad "Miša" Pavić (11 November 1921 – 16 August 2005) was a Serbian football player and coach.
He also coached Belgian teams Club Brugge (1967–1969), Standard Liège (1964–1967, 1985–1986, 1987–1988), Portuguese teams Benfica (1974–1975) and Sporting CP (1978–1979), and Spanish teams Athletic Bilbao (1972–1974), CD Málaga (1975–1977) and Celta de Vigo (1980–1983).

In his youth Pavić was taken hostage by the Germans in World War II.
As a player he defended the colours of Red Star Belgrade. After his active career he became a head coach with the same team, winning the national championship three times (1958–59, 1959–60, 1963–64) and winning three Yugoslav Cups (1958, 1959, 1964).
