Between 2000 and 2002, Firat was a member of the technical staff of Eintracht Frankfurt. He also did scouting for the team. Firat joined Turkish giants Fenerbahce S.K, as an assistant coach of German head coach Werner Lorant in 2002.

In November 2014, Firat was offered the assistant coach position by Galatasaray. Firat refused to work with head coach Cesare Prandelli. In the same time, newspapers in Bosnia and Herzegovina wrote that Firat is a top candidate as new head coach of Bosnian national team.

Firat made a surprise move in June 2015 and accepted an offer from last year UEFA Cup participant Karabukspor as club's General Manager. Karabükspor promoted to the Turkish Super League.

In 2016 Fırat was chosen as Vice President of the TÜFAD Europe (European Turkisch Coaches Association).

On 28 October 2019, Fırat was announced as the new manager of the Moldova National team.
