Shaun Dennis (born 20 December 1969 in Kirkcaldy) is a Scottish former player and coach.

Dennis made his debut for Raith Rovers in 1988 and stayed at Stark's Park until 1997, when he joined Hibernian. Shaun scored a penalty kick in the 1994 Scottish League Cup Final win over Celtic at Ibrox. He also played in Raith's subsequent UEFA Cup run the following year. Dennis also scored Raith's first goal in the Scottish Premier Division, against St Johnstone in August 1993, in a 1–1 draw.

Dennis won the Scottish First Division championship in 1999 and played in 64 games for Hibs before returning to Kirkcaldy on loan for three months in September 2000. He signed a permanent deal at Raith in the summer of 2001, staying for three years, winning the Second Division title in the process. Dennis signed for Brechin City in 2004, but returned to Kirkcaldy again in October, before retiring due to a recurring knee injury.

In total, Dennis played in over 400 games for Raith and has become a club legend.
