Having previously completed his UEFA B coaching licence in the summer, Huddlestone is already more than halfway towards securing the A badge.
Huddlestone told the Daily Star: "Hopefully I've still got a few years left playing but it's better to have it.
"It's (coaching) something I would like to do in the future and I didn't have much planned in the summer, so it was ideal to get it started.
"It's easier to get the badges while you're still playing, rather than be out of the game for four or five years and suddenly decide you want to get them because a few of your ideas might have been lost.
"While you still have fresh ideas and ways of playing, I think it's a good idea to get them done."
