MADRID (AP) — Sevilla says Joaquin Caparros will not be the team’s coach next season.
The Spanish club says Caparros will stay linked to the team but in a different position that will be announced in the future.
The former sports director has coached Sevilla since replacing the fired Pablo Machin in March, leading the club to a sixth-place finish in the Spanish league and a spot in the Europa League.
Caparros was also in charge of Sevilla for the final stretch of last season after Italian coach Vincenzo Montella was fired.
The 63-year-old Caparros last month announced he was fighting chronic leukemia but could keep working normally at the club.
