Naoki Naruo (鳴尾 直軌?, Naruo Naoki, born October 5, 1974) is a former Japanese football player and current coach/manager.

Naruo first coached Albirex Niigata Singapore in S.League in 2009,[1] ending the season in seventh position. He then went back to Japan to coach Grulla Morioka for five years, leading the club to ascend from semi-professional Tohoku Soccer League to a J3 League team. Naruo rejoined Albirex Niigata Singapore in 2016, replacing Tatsuyuki Okuyama.[2] He led the White Swans to an unprecedented sweep of all four of the league's major trophies.[3] This led to him being named the 2016 S.League Coach of the Year.[4] 2 days after winning the award, Naruo announced that he is leaving the newly crowned champions.[5]
