Manager careerEdit

In October 2006, he became assistant coach at Zagłębie Lubin under Czesław Michniewicz. The club won the league title in 2006–07. In October 2007 the club appointed Ulatowski as head coach. Zagłębie Lubin finished the 2007–08 season in fifth place but was relegated one division after past corruption was uncovered.

In July 2008, Ulatowski became assistant coach for the Poland national football team under Leo Beenhakker. He continued working with the Poland national team in a reduced capacity until Beenhakker was sacked in September 2009. In January 2009, he was named manager of GKS Bełchatów after the resignation of Paweł Janas and continued with the club until the end of 2009–2010 season, finishing fifth in the league.

A few days after his departure from Bełchatów, he was signed by Cracovia Kraków, taking the club's hot seat after Orest Lenczyk. The first months with the new team were far from successful, as Cracovia earned only four points in nine games and occupied the last position in the league's table. On 24 October 2010, Ulatowski resigned from his position.

On 9 November 2011, he signed a contract with Lechia Gdańsk.[1] He had further unsuccessful spells with Miedź Legnica and a second spell with GKS Bełchatów which saw the club relegated.[2]
