He made his professional debut for Feyenoord in a November 1973 Eredivisie match against Roda JC and also played for their arch rivals Ajax in the 1970s. In 1980 Everse was forced to retire from professional football due to a heavy injury, his final game was in December 1979 against Excelsior.
After his player career, he coached several amateur sides before taking charge of FC Zwolle in 1996. He then managed Sparta and Finnish outfit FC Jokerit, where he left after a row with the club's chairman. He then had spells at amateur sides Zwart-Wit '28 and Excelsior Maassluis before joining Zwolle for a second spell in 2006. He was given the sack in March 2009 after a highly publicized incident involving the son of a member of the club's board.
On 6 February 2010 SC Heerenveen officials hired Everse as their coach until June 2010, replacing Jan de Jonge. He coached Sparta for a second time during the 2010–2011 season, but left the club in February 2011 due to poor results. In 2015, he managed Dutch Eredivisie side FC Dordrecht, only to quit in March 2016 over a feud with technical director Marco Boogers. He was appointed head coach at BVCB Bergschenhoek in summer 2017.
