Siena have named Marco Giampaolo as their coach for next season after Mario Beretta walked away following a 13th-placed Serie A finish.
Giampaolo, 40, takes charge having been without a club since he was dismissed by Cagliari in December.
A month earlier, the 48-year-old Beretta had been reinstalled as Siena coach, but his second spell at the helm of the Tuscan side produced mixed results – and his departure by mutual consent.
The former Parma trainer's first stint had ended in similar fashion, after a long, if ultimately successful, relegation battle in 2007.
Appointed by Cagliari in the summer of 2005 after a strong campaign with Ascoli, Giampaolo helped the Sardinian team avoid relegation in 2006 – despite the inconvenience of being first sacked then reappointed by club President Massimo Cellino.
