In this pedagogical note, I present a method for constructing a fully covariant normal coordinate expansion of the gauge potential on a curved space-time manifold. Although the content of this paper is elementary, the results may prove useful in some applications and have not, to the best of my knowledge, been discussed explicitly in the literature.
