Coulibaly, a defensive midfielder, began his career at the famous Ivorian club ASEC Abidjan, in their youth academy run by former French international Jean-Marc Guillou. In 2004, he followed the well-trodden path from his homeland club to Belgian Jupiler League side K.S.K. Beveren, before spending time playing in Thailand for first Chonburi FC, then for BEC Tero.
In 2007, he moved to French Ligue 2 outfit SC Bastia, and after an impressive debut season in the French league, he was signed by Côte d'Azur based Ligue 1 outfit OGC Nice, joining his compatriot, and former Ivorian international Emerse Faé. On August 2012, Coulibaly signed a three-year contract with Turkish Süper Lig club Kasımpaşa S.K., which was then terminated in mutual agreement in January 2015.
On 22 June 2008, he was part of the senior Ivorian squad for the 2010 World Cup qualifier against Botswana, but was an unused substitute, as the Elephants ran out 4–0 winners. Finally, he received his first cap in the 2010 FIFA World Cup qualification match against Mozambique on 7 September 2008.
