Weinzierl coached Augsburg from 2012-16. That included a fifth-place finish in 2015 which brought Augsburg’s only qualification for a European competition.
Weinzierl hasn’t coached since he was fired by Stuttgart in 2019 following a 6-0 loss to Augsburg. On May 7, Stuttgart will be Weinzierl’s first opponent in his new job with Augsburg.
Herrlich was appointed in March 2020 but didn’t coach a game for more than two months because the league was suspended amid the coronavirus pandemic. When it resumed, he missed one game after he admitted leaving the team’s hotel “bubble” to buy toiletries.
