The South American Coach of the Year (Spanish: Entrenador del año en Sudamérica) is an annual association football award presented to the best coach of a club or national team in South America over the previous calendar year. The award has been presented by Uruguayan newspaper El País since 1986.

The award goes to any coach/manager of a South American club or national team, regardless of the coaches' nationality. With 13 winners, Argentine coaches have won the award the most. With five awards, Argentine Carlos Bianchi is the most decorated awardee. Carlos Bianchi, Carlos Bilardo, Óscar Tabárez and José Pékerman are the only coaches to have won the award consecutively, from 2000 to 2001, 1986 to 1987, 2010 to 2011 and 2012 to 2013[1] to 2011,[2] respectively.
