Austria named the German Franco Foda as their new coach on Monday, succeeding the Swiss Marcel Koller who announced his resignation last month after failing to qualify for the World Cup. Currently in charge of Austrian powerhouse Sturm Graz, Foda is the first German to be hired in the national team’s 113-year history. As a coach, he won the Austrian Cup with Sturm Graz in 2010 and the Austrian Bundesliga the following year. Foda will leave Sturm to start his new role on January 1, 2018.
