Ex-Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari appointed head of Gremio
Luiz Felipe Scolari, who resigned as coach of the Brazil men's national team following the team's fourth-place finish at the World Cup, has been appointed the new head coach of Brazilian club Gremio, the Porto Alegre club announced Tuesday.
It will be a return to the position for the 65-year-old Scolari, who coached Gremio in 1987 and from 1993-1996. In 1996, he lead the team to the Brazilian championship.
Scolari's 2014 World Cup team reached the semifinal before losing its final two games by a combined 10-1 margin.
Carlos Dunga was named Scolari's replacement as coach of the Brazil national team.
