Tong Hai retired from playing in 2004 and was appointed coach for the Prime League squad of Geylang United the following year. In 2006, he was promoted to caretaker coach of the first team and was likely to continue to lead the team for the 2007 S.League season as he was ready to rebuild the team after years of dismal results in the league, where Geylang United was last in the standings.
However, there was a turn of fortunes when Lim led Geylang to a much-improved 2007 season high of 4th in the S-League table. There were much changes in the Geylang United side with Kim Grant, Noh Rahman, Hassan Sunny and Tong Hai leading the team for a better start for the 2007 S-League season.
In late 2007, he was promoted to team manager when Slovakian Jozef Herel was brought in as the Coach.
