PSV Eindhoven hires coach Dick Advocaat

PSV Eindhoven says it has hired Dick Advocaat on a one-year

contract for next season after he quits as Russia coach following

the European Championship.

The 64-year-old Dutchman earlier coached PSV from 1995-98,

winning the league in 1997 and Dutch cup in 1996.

The well-traveled Advocaat has since coached clubs and countries

including Glasgow Rangers, Borussia Moenchengladbach, Zenit St.

Petersburg, the Netherlands, South Korea and Belgium before

succeeding fellow Dutchman Guus Hiddink as Russia coach.

PSV ended a disappointing third in the Dutch league, missing out

on a Champions League place for next season.

The club did not announce financial terms of his new contract

Thursday, but said he turned down lucrative offers from Russia to

return to Eindhoven.
