Uralan Appoints Coach

MOSCOW -- Premier League side Uralan Elista has named a new coach just two days after sacking its former trainer, officials said Thursday.

Sport-Express newspaper quoted Uralan officials as saying the team had chosen Vladimir Dergach, although he had never managed a Premier League side. His last job was at first division club Kaliningrad Baltika.

Uralan, second from bottom of the league, sacked coach Alexander Averyanov after it was knocked out of the Russian Cup last week.
