Ayoub Odisho Darcham (born 1960 in Baghdad) is a former Iraq national coach, who is currently coach of Syrian club Al-Jaish (Syria).

Ayoub was a tough tackling full-back, who played for Al-Talaba during his playing career. The right-sided defender joined the Students club in 1976, making his debut in a 1-0 win over Al-Shurta a year later. The defender, who can be easily mistaken for Khalil Allawi was one of the best defenders in the Iraqi league during the 1980s. He played alongside the likes of Hussein Saeed, Wathiq Aswad, Ali Hussein Shihab, Haris Mohamad and Adnan Dirjal during his career with the great club, helping Al-Talaba to three league titles in 1981, 1982 and 1987.

He made his international debut on the 9th February 1979 in the 1-1 draw with East Germany in a friendly game in Baghdad and went onto make 38 appearances for Iraq, but due to injuries was never regarded as a first team regular and did not make an appearance in an international competition.

After retiring in 1991, he went onto coach Al-Talaba and Al-Quwa Al-Jawiya, leading them to three trophies in the 1996-1997 season. The coach also had a lengthy spell in Lebanon managing Al-Akhaa Ahli Aley and Safa FC.
