Hubertus Jozef Margaretha "Huub" Stevens (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈɦyp ˈsteː.və(n)s]; born 29 November 1953) is a Dutch football manager and former defender.
Stevens was born in Sittard. While active, he played for Fortuna Sittard and PSV. During his time at PSV, he won the Eredivisie three times, the KNVB Cup once and also won the UEFA Cup once, in 1978. He also earned 18 caps for the Netherlands national team, scoring one goal.
Soon after beginning his career as head of youth development at PSV, where he helped bring and develop players and coaches such as Nick Theslof, in 1993, Stevens became the head coach of Roda JC. From October 1996 to June 2002, he coached German Bundesliga side Schalke 04, with whom he won the UEFA Cup in 1997 and the DFB-Pokal in 2001 and 2002. In 1999, Schalke fans picked Stevens as trainer of the century.
Afterwards, Stevens was appointed head coach of Hertha BSC, but he was sacked on 4 December 2003. He was then hired by 1. FC Köln, which he coached from 14 June 2004 to 27 May 2005, when he signed a two-year contract with Roda JC. Under Stevens, 1. FC Köln became champions of the 2. Bundesliga and were promoted to the Bundesliga. Stevens was at Roda until he returned to the German Bundesliga, becoming the new coach at Hamburger SV on 2 February 2007. By the time Stevens took over, the club was in the relegation zone. Results improved quite dramatically and led to Hamburg avoiding relegation and even finishing seventh in the league, thereby qualifying for the 2007 UEFA Intertoto Cup.
Stevens took over the head coaching vacancy at PSV after his Hamburg contract expired at the end of the 2007–08 season. It was reported he signed a two-year contract with the Eindhoven club, a club he holds very dearly to his heart. However, on 28 January 2009, he resigned as head coach, after which he signed a contract with Red Bull Salzburg in the Austrian Bundesliga on 22 April 2009.
On 9 February 2010, Stevens extended his contract with Red Bull Salzburg until 2012, but he was sacked on 8 April 2011. On 27 September 2011, returned to Schalke 04 and signed a contract lasting until 2013, following Ralf Rangnick's resignation. On 16 December 2012, Stevens was sacked by Schalke.
On 25 June 2013, Stevens became head coach of Superleague Greece side PAOK. PAOK terminated Stevens on 2 March 2014 due to the club's poor results.
After his departure, Stevens was appointed head coach of VfB Stuttgart on 9 March 2014, replacing Thomas Schneider. Stevens started his new position with training on 10 March 2014. His first match in charge was against Werder Bremen, a 1–1 draw. He resigned as head coach of Stuttgart on 10 May 2014 following a 1–0 loss to Bayern Munich. He finished his stint with a record of three wins, three draws and four losses in ten matches.
On 25 November 2014, Stevens returned to VfB Stuttgart. His first match in his return to the club was a 4–1 win against SC Freiburg on 28 November 2014. On 21 March 2015, in a 3–1 win against Eintracht Frankfurt, Stuttgart won its first match of 2015 and its second home win of the 2014–15 season. He left Stuttgart at the end of the 2014–15 season, where Stuttgart finished in the 14th position in the Bundesliga.
Stevens was appointed manager of 1899 Hoffenheim on 26 October 2015 after the club started the season with just six points in ten matches. He resigned on 10 February 2016, citing health problems.
