After an impressive run at the World Cup, Huh has opted to take some time off from coaching.
South Korea coach Huh Jung-Moo stepped down on Friday following a two-and-a-half year stint as boss of the Red Devils.
"I decided not to seek a second term," he told reporters.
"It is not a resignation - my contract finishes at the end of June. I want time to recharge myself and spend some time with my family."
The former PSV Eindhoven midfielder then insisted that there were other options for his role: "There are many good coaches in our football community. They should be given a chance."
During his tenure, Huh led South Korea to a 27-game unbeaten streak and earned the 2009 AFC Coach of the Year award. His team finished second in Group B before bowing out of the World Cup with a 2-1 loss to Uruguay in the last 16.
