Juan José Tramutola (October 21, 1902 — November 30, 1968) was an Argentine football coach. He notably helped the Argentine national team to a win at the 1929 Copa América and a second-place at the inaugural World Cup held in Uruguay. Along with Francisco Olazar, the two functioned as the two coaches of the team. Tramutola's title was that of "technical director".
