Per Brogeland (born 27 January 1953) is a Norwegian football manager. He has been the head coach of Lillestrøm,[1] among others.

He is among an exclusive group of Norwegians who have managed a top-flight team abroad, in Brogeland's case the Austrian LASK Linz. Controversially, however, he was sacked at a moment when the club was third in the league and had qualified for the quarter-finals of the cup.[2]

Under Brogeland's command, the small club Kongsvinger IL were runners-up in the Norwegian Premier League in 1992. In the 1993 UEFA Cup, after having beaten Swedish Östers IF 7-2 on aggregate, Brogeland led Kongsvinger to a surprise draw against Juventus at home.
