Terry Wallace (born 13 December 1958) is a former professional Australian rules football player and coach.

As a player, his career spanned three VFL/AFL clubs; most notably Hawthorn where he played in three premierships as well as achieving All-Australian selection, and two Best and Fairests with the Footscray Football Club. Wallace currently resides in Melbourne, with his wife Keryn and his four children; Brent, Georgia, Cam and Jordan.

As coach, he took the Western Bulldogs from 15th in 1996 to 3rd when he featured in the documentary Year of the Dogs. Between 1997 and 2000, Wallace coached the Western Bulldogs to suprememcy, taking them to four Grand Final apperances in a row, winning three (1997, 1998, and 1999) and losing the fourth (2000). Also in that time, he coached the International Rules Australian Team in both 1999 and 2001, winning all games. However, towards the end of 2003, the team slid down the ladder, and later that year, Wallace said the 2004 season would be his last. In his last game, played in front of 56,085 spectators, the Western Dulldogs defeated West Coast by 28 points, ending his career on a positive note. The last of his legacy would be left to his coaching style. Wallace's coaching style is considered to be innovative and he is credited with having started the modern practice of sides warming up the side on the field before a match
