Srećko Juričić (born 30 December 1954 in Volosko near Opatija) is a former Croatian football player and currently sporting director in HNK Rijeka.

As a player, he was part of HNK Rijeka's golden generation which won the Yugoslav Cup in 1978 and 1979. He is also Rijeka's most capped player with 684 caps. Juričić has captained the team both against Juventus in 1980 and Real Madrid in 1984.[1]

In his managerial career he has led HNK Rijeka and Al-Ahli Dubai. Internationally he has coached the Bahrain national football team, Oman national football team, United Arab Emirates national football team and Yemen national football team. He then moved to coach the Bahrain Riffa Club.

On 4 October 2008, it was announced that Juričić has moved back to the UAE to coach Al Wasl FC.

In June 2009 he was appointed as manager of Yemen national football team. In December 2010, he was sacked after a string of poor results at the 2010 Gulf Cup of Nations which Yemen hosted.[2]

In March 2012, Juričić was appointed director of sports in his first club HNK Rijeka.[3]
