Lang, who grew up in Kirchheim am Neckar , played in the youth division for FV Kirchheim, VfB Stuttgart and Stuttgarter Kickers . In the 1993/94 season he also played for the Kickers for the first time in the reserve team in the Landesliga Württemberg , in the 1994/95 season he completed at least 25 league games in a team with Zoltan Sebescen and Tayfun Korkut and was the top scorer with 21 league goals his team. As a striker he also played in the following years in Württemberg amateur football, after stints at FV Zuffenhausen and VfR Heilbronn , he joined SGV Freiberg in the association league in 1999 . With the team he made the league promotion in 2001, until 2004 he played 44 games (17 goals) for the club in the Oberliga Baden-Württemberg . In 2004 he went to TSV Schwieberdingen, at FC Heilbronn he tore his cruciate ligament in his first game for the club in Backnang .
The trained sports specialist is the owner and sports director of the children's soccer school elfwerken . In 2006 he acquired the Trainer A license at the Hennef Sports School and was a trainer at VfL Gemmrigheim in the district league A for five years , partly as a player trainer. In January 2013 he became assistant coach under Rüdiger Rehm at the regional league team SG Sonnenhof Großaspach , but ended this activity again after six months because it was not possible to agree the time with his football school. From summer 2013 he was coach of the national league club TSG Backnang 1919 . He led the team to promotion to the Württemberg league in 2014 and to promotion to the Baden-Wuerttemberg Oberliga in 2017, despite his already established departure at the end of the season.
For the 2018/19 season he returned to SG Sonnenhof Großaspach, which is now in the third division , as "Sporting Director of Talent Promotion" . In this role he was assistant coach of the first team, head coach of the U19s in the association relay and was also responsible for a new concept in promoting talent, for which the club entered into a cooperation with Lang's football school on the occasion of its "Dorfklub football school". Before the penultimate match day of the 2018/19 season , after the dismissal of the previous head coach Florian Schnorrenberg , Lang took over the interim coaching position of the professional team. With two wins from the two games against FSV Zwickau (5: 2) and Fortuna Cologne (2: 0), he led the team to a non-relegation zone. A continuation of his work as head coach beyond the end of the season was ruled out from the start because he did not have the necessary football instructor license.In 2019 and 2020 he was not given a place on the course despite having passed the entrance exam. In December 2019, before the last match day before the winter break, after Oliver Zapel's dismissal, he again took over the interim coaching position at Großaspach, and he still lacks the necessary coaching license for a longer-term head coaching role.
After the new coaching duo Mike Sadlo and Heiner Backhaus were released again after the winter break after three match days in mid-February 2020 , Lang took over the coaching post again on an interim basis. On the 26th matchday, Hans-Jürgen Boysen was installed in office until the end of the season and Lang was also appointed his assistant.
