Bundesliga club Augsburg fired coach Heiko Herrlich on Monday after a poor run of results left the team sliding toward the relegation zone.
Augsburg didn't win any of its last four games under Herrlich and is in 13th place in the 18-team league, four points above the relegation playoff place.
Herrlich's last game in charge was a 3-2 loss to Cologne.
Former Augsburg coach Markus Weinzierl is back for a second spell at the club as Herrlich's replacement.
Weinzierl coached Augsburg from 2012-16. That included a fifth-place finish in 2015 which brought Augsburg's only qualification for European competition.
Weinzierl hasn't coached since he was fired by Stuttgart in 2019 following a 6-0 loss to Augsburg. On May 7, Stuttgart will be Weinzierl's first opponent in his new job with Augsburg.
Herrlich was appointed in March 2020 but didn't coach a game for more than two months because the league was suspended amid the coronavirus pandemic. When it resumed, he missed one game after he admitted leaving the team's hotel “bubble” to buy toiletries.
