Struggling Dijon hires Antoine Kombouare as coach

DIJON, France - Struggling French club Dijon has hired Antoine Kombouare as coach until the end of the season. Kombouare replaces Olivier Dall'Oglio, who was fired during the mid-season break. He has an option for another year if he keeps the club in the first division. Dijon is in 18th place, which is the relegation-promotion playoff spot, and is two points behind Amiens in 17th. Kombouare was in charge of Guingamp this season, but was fired in early November with the club at the bottom of the standings.
