Coaching career[edit]


He became the coach of Alianza at the beginning of 2000 season, he went on to win the Apertura 2001 in the process becoming the first and so far only Salvadoran to win a title with Alianza as coach. He took the team to several final series before quitting the club to become coach of the El Salvador national team.

He quit as manager of Independiente Nacional 1906 in September 2006.[2]

Once Municipal[edit]

Juan Ramón Paredes was signed as coach of Once Municipal on 10 March 2008 after the shock resignation of Hugo Coria. However Juan Ramón Paredes could not reverse the terrible form slump of Once Municipal after only 8 matches in charge with only 3 draws and 5 losses to show for it (including a 5-2 defeat by Isidro Metapán). Paredes resigned as coach on 27 April.[3]

Other Coaching Duties[edit]

In October 2009 he replaced Victor Girón at Fuerte Aguilares[4] and in May 2010 Paredes signed up with fellow Second division side Municipal Limeño for the remainder of the 2010 Clausura season.[5] In October 2010 he joined Atlético Marte, replacing Luis Guevara Mora who was moved upstairs to become Director of Sports.[6]
