Francisco Olazar (July 10 1885 - September 21 1958) was an Argentine football centre-half and later coach. He played for and managed the Argentina national team.

Olazar was part of the Racing Club team that dominated Argentine football in the early 20th century. He played for the Argentina national team on 18 occasions including appearances at the first two Copa América tournaments in 1916 and 1917.

After retiring as a player Olazar turned to coaching, and managed Argentina during the first FIFA World Cup in 1930, where he and technical director Juan José Tramutola managed the albicelestes to second-place behind hosts Uruguay.
