Kevin Cullis (born 1958) is a former English football manager and a convicted fraudster.

Cullis' brief managerial career at the professional level came when he was appointed manager of Third Division Swansea City on 7 February 1996 by prospective new chairman Michael Thompson. He had never played professional football and his only previous management experience was as the youth coach of non-league club Cradley Town,[1] then of the West Midlands (Regional) League Premier Division, and based at Cradley in the Black Country.

Cullis managed Swansea City for just two games, a 1-0 home defeat to Swindon Town and a 4-0 defeat at Blackpool. According to the club, he resigned after the Blackpool match on 14 February 1996,[1] but Cullis himself denied that he had resigned and even claimed he was still in charge of the club.[2] A couple of days later, Swansea's outgoing chairman Doug Sharpe called off Thompson's takeover and resumed control.[3]

In April 2003, Cullis was jailed for nine months for fraud and deception at Wolverhampton Crown Court after falsely claiming to be a highly-paid marketing consultant.[4] He was jailed again, for a further nine months, at the same court in September 2004 for handling a stolen insurance certificate and using it with intent to deceive.[5]
