David Michael Williams (born 11 March 1955 in Cardiff) is a former professional footballer and football coach. He was a full Welsh international.

Williams was a midfield player who began his career with Bristol Rovers, for whom he played between 1975 and 1985. He was player-manager of Rovers when Norwich City manager Ken Brown took him to Carrow Road before the start of the 1985-86 season. Williams won a second division championship medal in his first season with the Canaries and went on to serve the club as player-coach and assistant manager before he left in 1992. During this period he also coached the Wales national team as a caretaker in 1988.

Williams went on to coach at Newport County, Bournemouth, Everton, Leeds United and Manchester United before returning to Norwich to manage the youth academy in the summer of 2004. In addition to his role at Carrow Road, he also coached the Welsh international youth sides. Williams was voted into the Norwich City F.C. Hall of Fame in 2002 in recognition of his contribution to the club as a player and a coach.

He announced his retirement from club coaching in May 2007.([1])
