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.
