González finished his football career at the age of 20, after only playing amateur football. After starting out as a manager in the same predicament he took charge of Deportivo Alavés' youth setup in 1994, being promoted to the B-team in 1997.
In 2003 González was appointed at CF Reus Deportiu, being promoted to Segunda División B at the end of the 2004–05 campaign. In his only season in the third tier the Catalans finished 17th, being relegated back to Tercera División in the last matchday.

On 14 June 2012, after nearly a year away from club duty, González was appointed Deportivo Alavés' manager, being promoted to Segunda División at the end of the season. He renewed his contract on 7 June 2013, eventually appearing in his first professional match on 16 August, a 0–1 away defeat against Girona FC.
On 3 December 2013, González was sacked after an awful start in Segunda División. On 1 June of the following year he returned to Reus, now in the third level.
On 8 June 2015, González renewed with Reus for a further year. During the 2015–16 campaign, he led the club to the round of 32 of Copa del Rey, being knocked out by Atlético Madrid, and also reached the promotion play-offs after Reus finished first in its group; in the play-offs, the club defeated Racing de Santander in a 4–0 win on aggregate, and achieved promotion to the second level for the first time ever.
