Serie B side Ternana have sacked Coach Domenico Toscano to bring in Attilio Tesser.
The decision had been in the air, but was made despite Ternana winning their final game of 2013 against Reggina.
Ex-Novara boss Tesser takes over with his entire staff and will begin working with the squad on January 7.
Serie B is currently on a Winter break.
