In 2014, he moved to FC Jazz where he was hired as a youth coach as well. However, in August 2014, he was appointed first team manager for the rest of the season after the departure of Jouni Joensuu. Uotinen was in charge for 10 games, picking up 13 points, before the club at the end of October 2018 announced, that he would continue in his role as a youth coach. In July 2016, he was once again appointed first team manager for the rest of the season, this time after the departure of John Allen.
Uotinen left Jazz at the end of the season after it was announced already in November 2016, that he would join TPS as academy coach from the new year. He left in November 2017 where his contract expired and it was immediately announced, that he would continue at SJK from the new year as an academy coach and manager of the club's U23 team. He left the position in July 2019 and became the manager of KPV.
