MILAN - Serie A strugglers Parma named
former Bologna boss Franco Colomba as their new coach on Tuesday
following Pasquale Marino's sacking.
Marino was axed after Sunday's 2-1 home defeat by bottom
side Bari left Parma just two points above the drop zone with
seven games remaining this season.
"The club announces that it has signed a deal today with the
coach that runs until the end of the 2011/12 season," a Parma
Colomba was sacked by top-flight Bologna the day before the
start of the season after falling out with club bosses, meaning
he is exempt from the rule which bars coaches from managing two
Serie A teams during one season.
Parma finished an impressive eighth last season in their
first term back in Serie A but have slid down the standings in
this campaign despite some notable wins.
