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).
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, Stevens began his managerial career in 1993 with Roda JC from Kerkrade. From October 1996 to June 2002 Stevens coached Schalke 04, 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. Afterwards, he was appointed head coach of Hertha BSC, but he was sacked on 4 December 2003 because of lack of success. Thereafter he was hired by 1. FC Köln, which he coached from 14 June 2004 to 22 May 2005. Under Stevens, 1. FC Köln became champions of the 2. Bundesliga and were promoted to the 1. Bundesliga. In May 2005 Stevens returned to the Netherlands and Roda JC.
On 2 February 2007, he returned to the German Bundesliga, becoming the new coach at Hamburger SV replacing Thomas Doll, who had been sacked due to lack of success. 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. 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 left PSV in January 2009 and signed a contract with FC Red Bull Salzburg on 21 April 2009. He started his job on 1 July 2009.
On 9 February 2010, Stevens extended his contract with FC Red Bull Salzburg until 2012, but he was sacked on 8 April 2011. On 27 September 2011, Huub Stevens returned to FC Schalke 04 and signed a contract until 2013, following Ralf Rangnick's resignation. On 16 December 2012, Stevens was sacked by FC Schalke 04. Stevens became head coach of PAOK on 14 June 2013.
