He is the son of Dutch international footballer Martin Koeman, and, alongside his younger brother Ronald, has also represented the Netherlands. All three Koemans played for Groningen at some time during their careers. Erwin Koeman's son, Len, is also a footballer and currently plays for the Helmond Sport youth team.
Koeman played with Groningen, Mechelen, where he won the Belgian League in 1989 and 1988 Cup Winners' Cup during the team's heyday and PSV, where they became league champions in 1990-91 and 1991-92.
Koeman was a midfielder for the Netherlands team that won the UEFA Euro 1988 competition, and also featured in the 1990 FIFA World Cup. In total, he was capped 31 times, scoring twice between 1983 and 1994.
Koeman finished his playing career with Groningen in 1998 and became youth coach at PSV. In October 2001, he was promoted to assistant manager under Eric Gerets, and for the 2004-05 season became manager in RKC Waalwijk. He managed RKC for one season before moving to Feyenoord. In March 2006, he extended his contract to the summer 2009. However, on 3 May 2007, Koeman announced his immediate resignation due to motivational problems, after a troublesome season, where Feyenoord eventually finished seventh.
Before the 2011-12 season, he was appointed as the new manager of FC Utrecht. However, on 18 October 2011 he quit the job citing bad working conditions and frustration after several key players had been sold.
In February 2019, he was appointed as the new head coach of Oman, succeeding fellow Dutch national Pim Verbeek. Under his tenure, the Omani team participated in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification - AFC Second Round where they managed an impressive performance with only one lone defeat to Qatar away by one goal margin, winning the other games. This impressive performance of Oman, however, was not followed in the 24th Arabian Gulf Cup, where Oman as champions, were eliminated from the group stage. He was subsequently fired as coach of Oman.
