The former Holland boss has enjoyed a 30-year coaching career and led PSV Eindhoven to victory in the 1988 European Cup final.
Hiddink was also caretaker-manager at Chelsea in 2009 and has also been in charge of Real Madrid, as well as a number of national teams, including South Korea and Russia.
The 66-year-oldf will sign off at cash-rich Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala, a club he has led into the last 32 of the Europa League, while they are also on course to qualify for the Champions League via the Russian Premier League.
"It was not my intention to stay very long when I joined this club. I'm basically going to stop at the end of the season," he said.
"At 66 years old I think I've nearly had enough. I don't know what I'll do. Maybe I'll be an advisor or supervisor to young players or coaches.
"I want to teach people how to handle certain issues in football or how they can plot their career path. That sounds interesting. I will not disappear into a black hole.
"I get up every day with so much energy, but you have to be careful not to get into a routine.
"You have to be careful that people will think, 'here he is again'. So Anzhi is basically the last team which I will coach."
