Coimbra was born in Santa Comba Dão, Viseu District. A product of S.L. Benfica's youth system, he appeared in 13 Primeira Liga games with the first team over the course of two seasons, after which he was loaned to Madeira's C.D. Nacional, also in the top division, for the 2007–08 campaign.
After this, Coimbra returned to Marítimo but was immediately released, moving to another side in division two, G.D. Estoril Praia. He contributed with 26 matches (all starts) and two goals in his third year, as his team returned to the top tier after an absence of seven years.
After leaving Estoril in 2014, Coimbra represented in quick succession Académico de Viseu FC and FC Rapid București, the latter from Romania. On 3 August 2015, he signed for Indian Super League franchise Kerala Blasters FC.
