Managerial career

After the resignation of Huub Stevens, Lodeweges was named PSV Eindhoven's head coach. He finished the season, but then left to become head coach for NEC Nijmegen,[1] On 9 April 2009 he signed on for two years[2] but was dismissed from the role of manager at NEC Nijmegen after the defeat 4–0 of Sunday, against PSV Eindhoven.[3]

On 9 March 2010 he was named as the new Head Coach of FC Edmonton.[4] He left the club before its first competitive match and signed to coach JEF United Chiba of J2 League on 3 December 2010.[5]

In 2013, he signed with SC Cambuur in the Dutch premier division. He left mid-season in 2014 when it became known he had signed with their arch-rivals SC Heerenveen for the next season. With Heerenveen he became seventh in the 2014/2015 season. The start of the 2015/2016 season was bad, with Heerenveen at the bottom of the table. In October 2015 he was replaced.
