His coaching career took off at Belgian club, Berchem Sport, which he guided to the championship of the Belgian fourth and third divisions. After this success, Brys took over the first division club Germinal Beerschot.
In his first year, with the smallest budget of the competition, Germinal finished 7th, although 75% of Belgian coaches predicted that the club would be relegated. In May 2005, during his second year, Brys took Germinal to a 1-2 victory over Club Brugge KV in the Belgian Cup, the first and only prize Germinal would win in its history. Germinal participated in the 2005/06 UEFA Cup but was eliminated by Olympique de Marseille on penalty kicks.
In 2010 Brys signed for two years with KV Mechelen. In his first year, the club attained the highest point total in its history.
In 2012 Brys managed Saudi club Al-Faisaly FC (Harmah). He reached the semi finals of the Crown Prince Cup and became group winner of the Gulf Cup. In his second season, however, he was fired, and took over the Club Al-Raed for the last four games of the competition. He managed to keep them in the First League with two wins and two draws.
