Jan Jönsson (born 24 May 1960) is a Swedish football manager and former player who is currently the head coach of Eliteserien club Stabæk.

Career[edit]

Playing career[edit]

He spent most of his playing career with Halmstads BK.

Coaching career[edit]

Between 1993 and 1994 he was the Sanfrecce Hiroshima assistant coach with Stuart Baxter as manager.

After retiring, he was appointed manager for Landskrona,[1] which he took to Allsvenskan, the Swedish top flight.[2] In 2005, he took over Norwegian club Stabæk[3] and led them to promotion in his first season. He won the league with Stabæk in 2008. On 19 November 2014 it was announced that Jan was moving home to Halmstad and had signed a 3-year contract as head coach of HBK.[4] His first season in charge ended with relegation from Allsvenskan. The following season Halmstad finished third in Superettan and faced Helsingborg in a two-legged play-off, which Halmstad won 3–2 on aggregate.[5]

In June 2019, he returned to Stabæk for his second spell as head coach at the club.[6] A main reason was his daughter Zara signing for Stabæk's women's team.[7] On 25 October 2019, Stabæk announced that their contract with Jönsson had been extended till the end of the 2022 season.[8]
