His managerial career started as assistant coach with Bayern Munich, serving under coaches Søren Lerby, Erich Ribbeck, Franz Beckenbauer, Giovanni Trapattoni and Otto Rehhagel. He managed the last match of the 1995–96 season against Fortuna Düsseldorf. From there he moved to become head coach of Austrian side Grazer AK from 1997 to 2000, taking them to two excellent third placings.

In the winter break of 1999–2000 he left Graz and took over 1. FC Nürnberg on 2 March 2000, then in the second division, leading them to promotion.

On 29 April 2003, Nürnberg sacked Augenthaler, as the club was facing relegation. He took over the reins at Bayer 04 Leverkusen in May 2003. He managed to save the club from relegation and stayed on there until September 2005.

In December of that same year he was hired by VfL Wolfsburg. His undistinguished time there ended shortly before the end of the season 2006–07. On 23 March 2010, he signed a half-year contract with SpVgg Unterhaching and replaced Matthias Lust. His contract was terminated on 3 June 2011. Augenthaler rejected contract offers from China and Turkey due to a lack of interest. He has applied to become the new head coach 1860 München. He stated how the "Sechzig or Hamburg – such clubs would appeal to me."
