Former Germany coach, Jupp Derwall, dies

Former Germany coach Jupp Derwall, who guided the team to the European title in 1980 and the runner-up finish at the 1982 World Cup, has died. He was 80.

The German soccer federation (DFB) said Derwall died Tuesday after a brief and serious illness, without giving details.

Derwall became head coach in 1978, after working as assistant to Helmut Schoen for eight years.

He lost the job in 1984, when Germany failed to advance from the first round at the European Championship in France. His successor was Franz Beckenbauer.
