Hoffenheim fires coach Stanislawski

Published:

FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) -- Hoffenheim says it is parting company with coach Holger Stanislawski, one day after losing 1-0 at home to second-division Greuther Fuerth in the German Cup quarterfinals.

Stanislawski joined the club at the start of the season from second-division St. Pauli. His contract was valid until 2014. Hoffenheim says it was terminated by mutual consent.

Hoffenheim won only one of its last 10 Bundesliga games.

No successor was immediately named. German media say Marks Babel is the leading candidate.
