Coaching career

Following the end of his playing days, Schmidt passed his manager diploma and worked as manager of SV Meppen for several years. After spending a year with Eintracht Nordhorn, Schmidt joined VfB Oldenburg as manager and came in second place in the German amateur football championship in 1988. In the same year, he joined FC Bayern Munich, managing their reserve team for two years,[2] before taking over as managing director of Hannover 96. While working in that office in Hannover, he was interim manager for two matches, before Michael Lorkowski took over.[3] He also managed VfB Lübeck and VfL Osnabrück,[4] before Schmidt went abroad for the first time in 1994. He managed Egyptian top-flight team Baladeyet Al-Mahalla before joining Saudi Premier League side Al-Qadisiya Al Khubar. In 1996 he returned to Germany, taking over as managing director of 1. FC Magdeburg. In September 1996, he succeeded Karl Herdle as Magdeburg manager, a job he kept until 1999. With Magdeburg he won promotion to the then-third-tier Regionalliga. After he was sacked at 1. FC Magdeburg in the fall of 1999, Schmidt became a scout for Bundesliga side Hamburger SV Between 2003 and 2007, Schmidt went abroad again, managing teams in Iran (Persepolis F.C.), Ghana (King Faisal Babes, Asante Kotoko, All Blacks FC), Egypt (Ismaily SC) and South Africa (Black Leopards). Since the beginning of the 2008-09 season, Schmidt has been director of sports at sixth-tier side SC BW 94 Papenburg.[5] After he was sacked in December 2009, Schmidt took on managing Ghana side Sekondi Eleven Wise who are fighting relegation from the Ghana Premier League[6]
