Rashid began his coaching career in 2010 when he was appointed as the Afghanistan national team’s batting coach. His hitting experience helped him improve Afghanistan’s batting performance. Despite this, due to involvement in the team by an Afghanistan cricket board member, he was forced to step down as batting coach and was replaced by the previous coach Kabir Khan. For his contentious statement about the spot-fixing controversy, he was given control of the wicket-keeping coach of the Pakistani team for a month before being removed. After that, he became the Afghanistan team’s head coach.

His career has been marred by issues, the first of which arose during his tenure with some players and management. He announced his retirement in 1998, but later returned with the role of leadership. He battled with management once more after the World Cup in 2003. He was stripped of his captaincy and the national team, and the administration replaced him with Pakistan batsman Inzamam-ul-Haq as captain.
