Guy Novès (born 5 February 1954) is a former French rugby union player and current coach of the French national team.

Born in Toulouse, Novès, who played on the wing, was capped seven times for the France national team. He played with Stade Toulousain from 1975 to 1987 and was a member of the team that won the Bouclier de Brennus in 1985 and 1986.

Novès returned to Stade Toulousain as head coach in 1993. During his tenure as coach, Toulouse won the French championship ten times, the Heineken Cup four times (1996, 2003, 2005, 2010), and the French cup twice. He was one of the candidates tipped to replace Bernard Laporte at the end of the 2007 Rugby World Cup, but that position went to Marc Lièvremont.[1]

Novès took over from Philippe Saint-André as the coach of the French national team on 1 November 2015.[2]
