Chris Graves (born c. 1975 in Fort Worth, Texas) is the head coach of the Birmingham-Southern College Panthers men's basketball team.

Graves worked on the staff of the University of Arkansas while completing his master's degree from 1999 to 2001. He later became an assistant at Tennessee State University. He was a head coach at Columbia Central High School in Columbia, Tennessee and at Pell City High School before joining the Birmingham-Southern staff in 2008.
