Anatoliy Vasylyovych Korobochka (Russian: Анатолий Васильевич Коробочка) (born 5 January 1955 in Simferopol, USSR, now Russia) is a former Midfielder, and was formerly the Director of Football at Heart of Midlothian football club in Scotland.

Korobochka has played for Tavriya Simferopol, CSKA Moscow, SKA Odessa, and numerous clubs in GDR. After retiring from playing in 1991 he moved into coaching with CSKA Moscow, coaching their reserve team. Afterwards he became head of player development for them. In 1998, he became head-coach of Tavriya Simferopol. This was followed by brief spells with Spartak-Chukotka and FC Reutov, where was also a general director. Over the years he held the administrator position at CSKA Moscow and Torpedo Moscow.

Korobochka arrived at Heart of Midlothian in 2006 as Director of Football along with Sport Director Alex Koslovski and Eduard Malofeev, the consultant who himself had an unsuccessful six-game spell as interim head coach in October 2006.
