Walter Chyzowych (Ukrainian: Володимир Чижович) (April 20, 1937 – September 2, 1994) was a Ukrainian born soccer player who played for Philadelphia Ukrainian Nationals and Newark Sitch of the American Soccer League and was later a coach for the United States national soccer team.[1]

Chyzowych moved to the United States at an early age and was two-time first team All-American at Temple University where he attended from 1957–1961, setting a team record for goals with 25. His first club team was Toronto City from 1961-1964. In 1964, Chyzowych earned his first cap with the national team; in total, he earned three caps. Chyzowych also played one season for the Philadelphia Spartans of the National Professional Soccer League in 1967; he played 15 games earning three goals and three assists.

Chyzowych began his coaching career while as a caretaker manager, coaching the Philadelphia Textile from 1961-1963. He was the director of coaching for the U.S. Soccer Federation from 1975-1981. He coached the National Team from 1976–1980, including the qualification rounds for the 1978 and 1982 World Cups. His biggest win while with the National Team was 2-0 upset of Hungary in 1979. Overall he had a respectable 8-14-10 record while with the national team. In 1986 he was named head coach at Wake Forest University, leading the team to four NCAA bids and one ACC championship in eight years.

Chyzowych was inducted in the National Soccer Hall of Fame in 1997.
