Schmidt was manager of Delbrücker SC from 1 July 2004 to 30 June 2007.[3]

SC Preußen Münster

He was appointed manager of SC Preußen Münster in May 2007.[4] Schmidt officially started the position on 1 July 2007.[4] He was sacked on 21 March 2010.[5]

SC Paderborn 07

Schmidt became manager of SC Paderborn 07 on 1 July 2011.[6]

Red Bull Salzburg

On 24 June 2012, he was announced as the new manager of Red Bull Salzburg after Ricardo Moniz.[7] In his second campaign, Schmidt led the club to their second title in three years. He also led them to the round of sixteen of the UEFA Europa League, where they recorded a 2–1 defeat to Basel in the second leg on 20 March 2014, hence losing on aggregate after drawing 0–0 in their first meeting seven days earlier.

Bayer Leverkusen

Bayer Leverkusen hired Schmidt on 25 April 2014 to become the head coach at the start of the 2014–15 season.[8]

On 21 February 2016, he was sent off by referee Felix Zwayer in a game over Borussia Dortmund after disputing a free kick that led to a goal for Dortmund, the only goal of the match. He initially refused to leave, causing Zwayer to suspend the game and lead the players off the field, culminating in an eight-minute delay before the match resumed without Schmidt on the field.[9]

On 5 March 2017, Schmidt was sacked by Bayer Leverkusen following a 6–2 loss to Dortmund.[10]

Beijing Guoan

In June 2017, it was announced that Schmidt joined Chinese Super League side Beijing Sinobo Guoan on a two-and-a-half-year contract.[11]

On 31 July 2019, he was sacked by Beijing Sinobo Guoan. Hundreds of fans came to the airport for an emotional farewell when he left.[12][13][14]

PSV Eindhoven

Schmidt became the new coach of PSV Eindhoven on 11 March 2020 and was presented by the social media network of the club. He penned a contract until 2022.[15]
