Schmid is charged with scouting players from the youth to international level and coordinate the Match Analysis scouting system. And he will serve as a first-team assistant coach to Sigi Schmid.

For the past three seasons, Kurt Schmid has been an assistant coach at the collegiate level, first at Saint Mary's College, then the past two years at UC Irvine.
