Nicolas Hibst (October 12, 1915 – January 21, 1959)[1] was a French association football player and manager. During his career, he played in Division 1 and Division 2 with FC Metz and AS Saint-Étienne and was part of the Metz side which lost the 1938 Coupe de France final.[2]

His first foray into coaching came when he took charge of Division 1 side Metz in 1946. After just one season, he left to manage Lens where he guided the Division 2 outfit to the 1948 Coupe de France final and to the Division 2 championship the following season. His career finished when he left Division 3 club Chamois Niortais in 1953, after a three-year tenure.
