Eric Roy appointed as Brest coach in French league

BREST, France (AP) — Struggling French league club Brest has appointed Eric Roy as its coach until the end of the season, hoping that the 55-year-old will help the Brittany side remain in the top division. Brest sits in the relegation zone after 17 matches, two points from safety. Roy replaces Michel Der Zakarian, who was sacked in October after leading the team to just one win in 10 rounds.
