Milorad "Miša" Pavić (November 11, 1921 in Valjevo - August 16, 2005 in Valjevo) was a Serbian football player and coach.

In his home country he coached Red Star Belgrade and FK Vojvodina.

He also coached Belgian teams Club Brugge (1967-1969), Standard Liège (1964-1967, 1985-1986, 1987-1988), Portuguese teams S.L. Benfica (1974-1975) and Sporting Lisboa (1978-1979), and Spanish teams Athletic Bilbao (1972-1974), CD Málaga (1975-1977) and Celta de Vigo (1980-1983). Outside Yugoslavia he was known by nickname Michel. The press also described him as a Gentleman in Iron Gloves.

In his youth Pavic was taken hostage by the Germans in World War II.

As a player he defended the colours of Red Star Belgrade. After his active career he became a head coach with the same team, winning the national championship three times (1958/59, 1959/60, 1963/64) and winning three Yugoslav Cups (1958, 1959, 1964). For seven seasons between 1957 and 1964, he led the team from the bench in 216 official competitive matches (113 wins, 52 draws, and 51 losses).

Pavic also won two Belgian Cups as a coach with Standard Liege (1966, 1967), a Spanish Copa del Rey with Athletic Bilbao (1973), and a Portuguese league with Benfica in 1974/75.
