Ulf Ottosson (born 2 July 1968, in Degerfors) is a retired Swedish football striker. He has also coached various teams in Sweden.

Ottoson spent most of his playing career at Degerfors IF, having three different spells at the club in total. He had a brief spell in England on loan with Division One side Norwich City in 1997, scoring one goal in a 3–2 win away at Sheffield United. Manager Mike Walker decided against offering him a full-time contract, resulting in Ottoson's return to Sweden.

At the end of his second spell with Degerfors, Ottoson was said to have started his own business making cabinets.[1]

Ottoson began coaching at Gullspångs IF in 2005, before taking up a player role Strömtorps IK in 2006. The following year, he became coach of Strömtorps, but was fired in September 2007 following a 2–0 loss against Kungsör BK.[2] After taking a three-year-long timeout from football, Ottosson returned as a player-manager for Swedish 7th level club Ängebäck BK in 2011 but quit halfway through the 2013 season.
