STUTTGART, Germany —

Jurgen Kramny has been promoted to fulltime coach at Stuttgart, one day after a 3-1 victory over Wolfsburg.

Kramny has been in charge on an interim basis for nearly a month, since the firing of Alexander Zorninger.

Saturday’s win against Wolfsburg lifted Stuttgart out of the relegation zone.

Stuttgart’s director Robin Dutt says that under Kramny ”we’ve seen a development from game to game and we want to take this momentum into 2016.”

Kramny received a contract through mid-2017.
