Hubertus "Huub" Jozef Margaretha Stevens (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈɦyp ˈsteː.və(n)s]; born 29 November 1953) is a Dutch football manager and former defender who last was head coach of German Bundesliga club VfB Stuttgart.

Playing career[edit]

Stevens was born in Sittard. While active, he played for Fortuna Sittard and PSV Eindhoven. During his time at PSV he won the Eredivisie three times, the KNVB Cup once and also won the UEFA Cup once in 1978. He also earned 18 caps for the Netherlands (one goal).

Coaching career[edit]

Soon after beginning his career as head of youth development at PSV, where he helped bring and develop players and coaches such as Nick Theslof,[1] Stevens became head coach in 1993 with Roda JC from Kerkrade. From October 1996 to June 2002 Stevens coached Schalke 04,[2] with whom he won the UEFA Cup in 1997 and the DFB-Pokal in 2001 and 2002. In 1999, the fans of Schalke 04 picked Stevens as trainer of the century.[3] Afterwards, he was appointed head coach of Hertha BSC,[4] but he was sacked on 4 December 2003.[5] Thereafter he was hired by 1. FC Köln, which he coached from 14 June 2004[6] to 27 May 2005 when he signed a two–year contract with Roda.[7] Under Stevens, 1. FC Köln became champions of the 2. Bundesliga and were promoted to the 1. Bundesliga. Stevens was at Roda until he returned to the German Bundesliga, becoming the new coach at Hamburger SV on 2 February 2007.[8] By the time Stevens took over, the club was in the relegation zone. Results improved quite dramatically and led to Hamburg avoiding relegation and even finishing 7th in the league, thus qualifying for UEFA Intertoto Cup 2007.

Stevens took over the vacancy at PSV Eindhoven after his HSV contract expired at the end of the 2007–08 season.[9] It has been reported he has signed a two-year contract with the Eindhoven club, a club he holds very dearly to his heart. He resigned from PSV on 28 January 2009[10] and signed a contract with Red Bull Salzburg on 22 April 2009.[11]

On 9 February 2010, Stevens extended his contract with Red Bull Salzburg until 2012,[12][13] but he was sacked on 8 April 2011.[14] On 27 September 2011, Huub Stevens returned to Schalke 04 and signed a contract until 2013, following Ralf Rangnick's resignation.[15] On 16 December 2012, Stevens was sacked by FC Schalke 04.[16][17] Stevens became head coach of PAOK on 25 June 2013.[18][19] PAOK released Stevens on 2 March 2014 due to the bad results in the last period.[20][21]

After his departure from PAOK, Stevens was appointed as the new head coach of German club VfB Stuttgart on 9 March 2014 replacing Thomas Schneider.[22] Stevens started his new position with training on 10 March 2014.[22] His first match in charge was against Werder Bremen.[23] The match ended in a 1–1 draw.[24] He resigned as head coach of Stuttgart on 10 May 2014[25] after a 1–0 loss to Bayern Munich.[26]
