Justin Evans (born January 31, 1977) is an American soccer coach and former professional player.
After graduating from college, Evans signed for the newly formed Pittsburgh Riverhounds in 1999, becoming the team's #1 draft pick and first player. He also spent time that season in Poland playing in the first division for Petro Płock. In February 2000, the San Jose Earthquakes selected Evans in the second round of the 2000 MLS SuperDraft. The Earthquakes released him mid-season and Evans returned to the Riverhounds. However, he was called up to the Chicago Fire for several games that season. In February 2001, the Fire then drafted Evans in the 2001 MLS SuperDraft. He played five games for the Fire and one game on loan to the Riverhounds before trading him to the Dallas Burn on July 1, 2001 for future considerations. Evans signed for the Charleston Battery for the 2002 season, making 29 league appearances. After playing in Poland, Evans re-signed with the Battery for the 2004 and 2005 seasons, making a total of 59 league appearances. Evans re-signed with hometown club Pittsburgh Riverhounds for the 2008 season.
Evans has also played indoor soccer, playing with the Cleveland Force (2001–2004) and Kansas City Comets between 2004 and 2005. Evans retired from professional soccer at the end of the 2009 season.
Evans was hired as the head coach of the Pittsburgh Riverhounds on January 11, 2010 and served in that capacity until May 19, 2014.
