Jörn Großkopf (born 29 August 1966 in Hamburg) is a German former football player and manager.[1] He was most recently i charge of KFC Uerdingen 05.

Großkopf, nicknamed "Krümel",[1][2] made his Bundesliga footballing debut for FC St. Pauli on 22 October 1988 as a last-minute substitute in a 1–0 home win over Borussia Dortmund.[3] He went on to score two goals in 30 appearances for the Hamburg-based team. Sixteen years later, Großkopf returned to Millerntor to take over the reins of FC St. Pauli's under-19 youth team and on 15 January 2009, took over as head coach of FC St. Pauli's reserve team, helping them gain promotion from the Oberliga Hamburg to the Regionalliga Nord in his first season. In July 2013 he was appointed as manager of Hessen Kassel. He was sacked on 12 November 2013.[4] In December 2014 he became assistant manager at SC Poppenbüttel.

In March 2016 he became new manager of KFC Uerdingen 05 on a short term contract.[5] Because he failed to get the club promoted to the Regionalliga his contract was not renewed, when it expired in May 2016.[6]

Despite having an agreement to become new Wedeler TSV manager he chose an offer from SV Eichede and was presented as manager of that club on 2 July 2016.[7]
