Michael Oenning (born 27 September 1965) is a German football coach and former player, who formerly managed Hamburger SV and 1. FC Nürnberg.[1]

Playing career[edit]

Oenning graduated in German and Sports science. During 80's and 90's he had a playing career, during which he played for Eintracht Coesfeld, SV Wilmsberg, SC Preußen Münster, Hammer SpVg, TSG Dülmen and SC Pfullendorf.

Coaching career[edit]

Early career[edit]

In 1999 he started coaching career. Oenning worked as coach employed by Württemberg Football Association, from 1999 until 2004. In 2000, he joined the coaching staff of the German U-18 and U-20 selections, where he was an assistant.

In 2004, he was named an assistant manager to Dick Advocaat in Borussia Mönchengladbach.[2] Oenning worked there until 2005, when he joined Holger Fach and later Klaus Augenthaler in Wolfsburg, also as an assistant.[2] After two seasons, in 2007, Oenning joined VfL Bochum, as their youth coach.[2] During one season, he was working with U-19 selection. Few months after he took a position of Bochum's youth coach, he was sacked.

Nürnberg and Hamburg[edit]

He wasn't unemployed for long, because he joined Thomas von Heesen in February 2008, as his assistant in 1. FC Nürnberg.[2]

Von Heesen and Oenning were working together until 28 August 2008, when Von Heesen got sacked and Oenning replaced him.[3] This was his first experience as head coach. After a slow start in 2. Bundesliga, Oenning was able to guide Nürnberg to a third place finish and a playoff with 16th place Energie Cottbus. Nürnberg won the playoff 5–0 on aggregate and plays in the Bundesliga since 2009. On 21 December 2009, Oenning was sacked.[4]

Hamburger SV named him an assistant to Armin Veh prior to the 2010–11 Bundesliga season.[2] But after Veh got fired, Oenning became the new head coach.[5] He signed a two-year contract, until June 2013.[6] After a poor start in 2011–12 season that saw Hamburg in last place with only one point out of six games, Oenning was sacked.[7]
