Tom McVie (born June 6 1935, Trail, British Columbia) was a coach in the National Hockey League. He coached the Washington Capitals from the 1975–76 season to the middle of the 1978–79 season. He moved to the Winnipeg Jets, then in the World Hockey Association, and coached the team to the Avco Cup in its last WHA season (1978-79). McVie then coached the Jets in their first two NHL seasons, 1979–80 and 1980–81. He replaced Bill MacMillan as head coach of the New Jersey Devils midway through the 1983–84 season, in which the team posted the worst record in its history. McVie returned as an NHL head coach with the Devils in 1991–92 after coaching the AHL Utica Devils.

McVie never played in the NHL but played thirteen seasons in the Western Hockey League for thirteen seasons from 1958-71. He played for several teams, primarily the Seattle Totems and the Portland Buckaroos.
