The next challenge for Pedro came in the form of being a football coach at Club Athletico Paranaense. He was able to have coached the U-15 to U-23 side from 2009 to 2013. For the U-20 and U-23 youth squads the Brazilian worked as the assistant trainer and used the time to observe and learn.

Here he fulfilled the role of a coach through recruiting athletes, preparing training sessions and tactics, player management and more.  

In 2016 Pedro Almiro dos Santos Medeiros took a large leap in his career by becomming a first team coach in the Brazilian Championship D Series for the first time. He became the head coach of Esporte Clube Comercial. Here Pedro was able to take the lead role of his club and be in full control of the management of players and the recruitment of athletes. 

Serving only a short time at the club, in the same year (2016) he made another move which lead him to Coritiba Football Club. Here he worked as the U-15 and U-17 coach and helped with the development of young talent. Pedro stayed at Coritiba Football Club until 2017 which helped him gain experience, knowledge and learn how to practically apply all he has learnt.
