Dennis Jones (13 November 1936 – 19 December 1999) was an Australian rules footballer who played with Melbourne in the Victorian Football League (VFL). He then moved to South Australia where he coached Central Districts to the finals for the first time.

Jones, a half-back, made his senior VFL debut in 1956 and was a member of Melbourne's 1959 premiership side. He retired from the VFL aged 25, and in 1968 became senior coach of South Australian National Football League (SANFL) club Central District. Jones remained in that role for four seasons before moving to the Western Australian Football League (WAFL) to coach West Perth, and getting them to a Grand Final. In 1978 Jones rejoined Melbourne, where he had been appointed coach, but he could not prevent the team finishing with the wooden spoon.
