José de Jesús Ramírez Ruvalcaba (born 21 April 1957 in Mexico City, Mexico) is a Mexican former footballer. Previously Ramirez had served under then Mexico national team manager Miguel Mejia Baron as an assistant from 1993 to 1995.

In 2005, Ramirez won the U-17 World Cup with Mexico. Ramírez was named caretaker manager of the senior Selección de fútbol de México (Mexico national team) on 31 March 2008, after the sacking of Hugo Sánchez, until the permanent appointment of Sven-Göran Eriksson in June 2008.[1][2]

Career as manager[edit]

On February 2009, he was appointed the new coach of Club América, replacing Argentinian Ramon Diaz. In the 2009 Torneo Apertura, his first full tournament as manager, América were able to qualify to the playoffs for the first time in three years. América would be eliminated in the quarter-finals against C.F. Monterrey, however. After the disappointing 2010 Torneo Bicentenario which ended with a defeat to Toluca in the quarter-finals, América decided not to renew Ramírez's contract. On June 16, 2011, “Chucho” will be the Honorary Heat Head Coach when Laredo takes on the West Texas United (Midland) Sockers at the TAMIU Soccer Complex
