Udinese fires coach Giuseppe Iachini after 4 defeats in 7

UDINE, Italy (AP) " Udinese has fired coach Giuseppe Iachini, one day after a 3-0 loss at home to Lazio.

The Serie A club announced the dismissal on Sunday in a brief statement.

Iachini, who was fired twice by Palermo last season, took charge of Udinese in May but has lost four of the opening seven matches this campaign.

Udinese, whose players left the pitch to fans' jeers on Saturday, is just one point above the relegation zone.

It is the second coaching change of the season after Davide Ballardini resigned from Palermo.
