Karel Jarolim to take over as coach of Czech Republic

Karel Jarolim is the new coach of the Czech Republic national team.

Mlada Boleslav manager Karel Jarolim will take over as coach of Czech Republic.

The Czech federation says Jarolim will get a two-year-contract, starting Aug. 1, with an option for another two years.

Friday's announcement comes after a week of negotiations between the federation and Mlada Boleslav, the Czech club where Jarolim is under contract.

Jarolim replaces Pavel Vrba, who terminated his contract with the national team after being eliminated in the first round at the European Championship.

In France, the Czechs lost to Spain 1-0 and Turkey 2-0, and drew with Croatia 2-2 to finish last in Group D.

Jarolim, 59, will still lead Mlada Boleslav in qualifying for the Europa League until Aug. 25.
