Roland Kirchler (born September 29, 1970 in Innsbruck ) is a former Austrian football player in the position of midfielder and was coach of the Austrian Bundesliga club Wacker Innsbruck from October 17, 2012 to December 16, 2013 .


Roland Kirchler started his career at WSG Swarovski Wattens . His first Bundesliga position was at FC Swarovski Tirol , where he signed a contract in 1990. He celebrated his greatest successes at FC Tirol Innsbruck , with whom he was three times Austrian champion from 2000 to 2002. During this time, after two appearances in 1993 and 1996 in the national team from 1999 to 2001, he was now also regularly playing for the first time.

Until the bankruptcy and the dissolution of the Red-Greens in 2002, he remained loyal to the Tyroleans, after a six-month detour to the Chinese football league, he moved to SV Austria Salzburg . After a year in Salzburg, he moved to FC Superfund in Pasching . After Roland Kirchler became a regular in the national team after his return to Austria from 2003 to 2005, he moved to FC Red Bull Salzburg at the start of the 2005/06 season . After hardly any more assignments under Giovanni Trapattoni , he started working for SCR Altach in spring 2007 .

At the end of the 2007/08 season, Roland Kirchler entered the coaching business. Together with Robert Wazinger , he managed the sporting skills of the Austrian regional league team WSG Swarovski Wattens as a player coach . In the 2008/09 season, the runner-up in the Regionalliga West was achieved. From 2010 he only worked there as a coach and also achieved the runner-up title in the 2009/10 season. In 2010/11, the runner-up title entitled to relegation games for promotion to the second-class first division , but WSG Swarovski Wattens failed due to Blau-Weiß Linz . In the 2011/2012 season he won the championship title with WSG Swarovski Wattens without defeat, but failed again in the relegation for promotion to the Today for Tomorrow First League clearly at SV Horn from Lower Austria (total score 1: 9).

In October 2012 he succeeded Walter Kogler as head coach of FC Wacker Innsbruck . FC Wacker won their first game under Kirchler 1-0 against SV Ried . It was the first victory for Innsbruck after seven defeats in a row, which was followed by further victories against SV Mattersburg , SC Wiener Neustadt (championship) and SK Sturm Graz (cup). With the game against Wr. Neustadt was also given the red lantern to them. In a memorable and extremely dramatic season finale, in which four teams were involved in the relegation battle, the Innsbruck team won 3-2 in Wolfsberg on May 26, 2013 after a seemingly hopeless 2-0 deficit and thus sentenced SV Mattersburg to relegation, who was still in seventh place after the 35th lap. In the final phase of the last game of the season, however, Roland Kirchler gave the fourth official Markus Hameter a push and was therefore suspended on June 3 by the Bundesliga criminal senate for one month and also sentenced to a fine of 10,000 euros, half of which was conditionally checked for six months. The autumn 2013 season was not very good for the traditional Innsbruck club, after 20 games Wacker only had a meager 16 points on the account. The association therefore dismissed Roland Kirchler on December 16, 2013.

At the end of August 2014 he was introduced as the Tyrolean football coordinator and his contract runs until 2017. He is supposed to act as a link between FC Wacker Innsbruck , WSG Wattens and the Tyrolean football academy.
