Udinese fires coach Marino, hires De Biasi

BY foxsports • December 22, 2009

Udinese has sacked coach Pasquale Marino after a disappointing run of results and hired Gianni De Biasi as replacement.

In a brief statement posted on its Web site, Udinese thanked Marino for the two and a half years he spent in charge of the club.

Marino had been under pressure after a disappointing first half of the Serie A campaign. Udinese is 14th in the standings, five points above the relegation zone.

The club has one game in hand as its match with Cagliari the past weekend was postponed due to heavy snowfall.
