Andrea Sottil has been named as the new coach of Serie B side Pescara after Nicola Legrottaglie was fired.
The 46-year-old had been out of work since his on-again off-again rapport with Catania finally concluded last summer.
A former Torino, Fiorentina Atalanta, Udinese and Genoa defender, Sottil takes over until the end of the season.
It has been a difficult campaign for Pescara, as Legrottaglie only had 12 games in charge from January 21 to July 6.
He had replaced Luciano Zauri, who started the season and was fired on January 20 after 22 matches.
