Steve Stirling (born November 19, 1949 in Clarkson, Ontario, Canada) is an assistant coach of the Binghamton Senators of the American Hockey League. He is the former head coach of the American Hockey League's Norfolk Admirals, the Springfield Falcons, and the National Hockey League's New York Islanders. Most recently, he has been working as head coach for the Iserlohn Roosters in Germany.

Before coaching the Admirals to their worst finish in franchise history, he spent a season and a half as coach of the Islanders before his dismissal in January 2006. During his rookie campaign in the NHL, Stirling led the Islanders to a pretty impressive record of 38–29–11–4. In the NHL playoffs, Stirling's Islanders were beaten by the eventual Stalnley Cup winning Tampa Bay Lightning in five games.

He has also played centre (ice hockey) for various teams in the NCAA, AHL and NAHL. He has previously served as head coach of the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, Springfield Falcons, Babson College, and Providence College and as assistant coach of the Islanders and the Lowell Lock Monsters.

After the disappointing season with the Admirals, general manager Jay Feaster announced that Steve Stirling would not be the coach heading into the 2008–2009 AHL season. Stirling has been given a job as a scout for the hockey club. On June 16 the German DEL club Iserlohn Roosters announced that Stirling signed a 2-year contract as their head coach. After 44 games and a 0–6 series he was dismissed by the German DEL-Club on February 5, 2009.

Steve was signed as an assistant coach of the Binghamton Senators (Ottawa's farm team) in 2009. The Binghamton Senators won the AHL Calder Cup National Championship one season later.
