The Sigi Schmid Coach of the Year Award is given by Major League Soccer to the best coach in any given season. The award has been given since the league's inception in 1996 and is determined by a vote from players, club personnel, and members of the media.[1][2] Bruce Arena and Bob Bradley have won the award three times, more than any other coach.[3]

The award was renamed in January 2019 for Sigi Schmid, the manager with the most league regular season wins and two-time award winner, shortly after his death.[4]
