Carlos Leonardo Barra Díaz (born 6 November 1968, in Entabladero, Veracruz) is a Mexican football manager and former player. He has managed two teams in the Liga MX. He is the current assistant coach for Real Oviedo.
The debut of Carlos Barra was the play-off with Veracruz on Saturday, 11 November 1989.
His first experience as technical director in the Liga MX was in the Clausura 2007, as an internship with Veracruz, on 17 February 2007, when he directed a team against the San Luis and won.
Failing to reach an agreement in the Torneo de Clausura 2009 with La Volpe, the club Monterrey offered the opportunity of managing the team to Víctor Manuel Vucetich and Barra served as his assistant. After several years of success, during the 2013 Apertura tournament, Vucetich was stopped and, as a consequence, Carlos Barra was handed over the direction of the team.
In the middle of the 2014 Clausura tournament José Guadalupe Cruz was invited by Monterrey to relieve the managing of the team, together with Jose Treviño. After obtaining good results during the rest of the tournament, and after a failed attempt by Monterrey to hire an other coach, Barra was announced as the coach definitively for the 2014 Apertura tournament, on 16 May 2014.
On 15 February 2015, Barra was sacked from Monterrey due to poor results in Clausura 2015.
