Mohiuddin was part of a coaching committee under Tariq Lutfi during the victorious 3 match series against India in 2005. When Salman Sharida took charge in 2005, Mohiuddin worked as his assistant.
When Sharida quit in 2007, Mohiuddin was given the manager’s role over the short term until a foreign coach could be found. He had to face Asian champions Iraq in the 2010 World Cup qualifiers. Losing the first leg 7-0, the team was able to keep the Iraqi’s at bay in the second leg in a nil-nil draw.
The second leg result was seen as a success and Mohiuddin was given the opportunity to remain in command of the national team for the 2008 fixtures. The PFF set a two match away series again Nepal in late March as preparation for the 2008 AFC Challenge Cup qualifiers. After a 30-hour trip and only a few hours rest, Pakistan lost the first match 2-1, despite having a first half lead. However, in the second match they won 2-0.
They then travelled to Taipei for 2008 AFC Challenge Cup qualifiers where Mohiuddin was expected to qualify for the main round. Pakistan first faced Chinese Taipei, and in a spirited displayed they came from 1-0 down to win 2-1. However, everything went wrong against Sri Lanka when Pakistan were thrashed in a humiliating 7-1 defeat. It also signalled the beginning of the end of Mohiuddin's term as Manager. With the final game being a dead rubber, Pakistan had a big win with a 9-2 victory over Guam, Pakistan's biggest victory in their history.
Another disappointing performance in SAFF Championship 2008 where the Pakistan team failed to go beyond the group stages, losing to Maldives 3-0, India 2-1 and Nepal 4-1, signalled the end of Akhtar Mohiuddin as head coach.
He returned as manager with Graham Roberts in late 2010, but the team performed poorly during the 2010 Asian Games where the team lost 3 their matches and drew one he was replaced.
