ROME -- Former Juventus manager Antonio Conte was confirmed as the new coach of Italy after signing a two-year contract on Thursday. Julian Weigl Jersey . The Italian football federation announced the appointment, three days after new president Carlo Tavecchio was elected. Tavecchio and Conte spoke on the phone early Thursday. Conte will be presented at a news conference in Rome on Tuesday. His contract was to July 31, 2016, following the European Championship in France. Contes first match in charge will be a friendly at home to the Netherlands, in Bari on Sept. 4. Italy kicks off its Euro 2016 qualifying campaign away to Norway, five days later. It also plays Croatia, Bulgaria, Azerbaijan and Malta in Group H. The 45-year-old Conte replaces Cesare Prandelli, who resigned -- along with former FIGC president Giancarlo Abete -- immediately after Italys early elimination from the World Cup in Brazil. The FIGC said Contes deal, which will be in line with what Prandelli earned, also included bonuses for qualifying for Euro 2016, reaching the final, and improving the Azzurris world ranking by five or more places. His job also includes co-ordinating the national youth teams, replacing Arrigo Sacchi. Conte quit Juventus last month, shortly after steering the club to a third successive Serie A title. "Juventus wishes Antonio Conte all the best with his new role as coach of the Italian national side," the club tweeted. Andriy Yarmolenko Jersey .com) - The University of Montana named Bob Stitt as its new head football coach on Tuesday. Mario Gotze Jersey .C. -- Clemson celebrated a senior class Saturday that brought the program back as a national contender. . TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie tweeted on Monday that Hemsky will be going to market as an unrestricted free agent on July 1.MINNEAPOLIS - For more than two decades, Paul Molitor scratched and clawed his way to the Hall of Fame by turning every at-bat into a battle of wills.His competitiveness and instincts were rare traits that helped him speed through the minor leagues in just one year, pile up more than 3,300 hits and remain productive well after his 40th birthday.Now that he has taken over as manager of his hometown Minnesota Twins, one of Molitors big challenges will be finding a way to convey the characteristics that made him one of the games greatest hitters on to a new generation of players, the majority of whom will never approach his accomplished career.Thats something that we hear about, managers who were so-called successful players, that they dont have the patience to put up with players that cant seem to get it, Molitor said on Tuesday during his introductory press conference. They cant do what I did or they cant do it this way. After (16) years, Ive got a much better perspective and feel for that. I know, still, that the games hard.Molitor has been retired since 1998 and has spent the time since grinding away as a roving instructor in the Twins minor league system, one year as a hitting coach with the Seattle Mariners and last year as an assistant on Ron Gardenhires staff with the Twins.He is the 63rd Hall of Fame player to become a manager, according to STATS. Thirty-four of those finished their managing careers with losing records, including Ed Walsh and Honus Wagner, who managed a combined eight games.The decision to fill a managerial position with a Hall of Fame player is becoming increasingly rare. Molitor is just the fourth Hall of Famer in the last 25 years to get a managing job, joining Tony Perez (.468 career winning percentage), Frank Robinson (.475) and Ryne Sandberg (.456).I will never forget that the game is very, very difficult, Molitor said. And I dont expect players to do things exactly the way I did. Our coaches wont do the same. Were going to try to get these guys to improve. For me, frustration because guys dont get it? Tell them again. Help them again. Support them again. Encourage them again. Stay after it.He takes over for Gardenhire, a beloved figurre in Twins lore who was fired after the fourth straight season of at least 92 losses. Andre Schurrle Jersey. I watched him all year on the top step of the dugout, Twins owner Jim Pohlad said. I saw Paul the whole year and really just actively involved and just tense to the game, so that was really a positive to me. When we decided to make a change, Pauls name was definitely on the list and arguably at the forefront of the list.All-Star closer Glen Perkins has known Molitor for years and sees a difference in him compared to other Hall of Famers.He never was the biggest, the fastest, the strongest, any of those things, Perkins said. He got by and did a lot of little things. Those are things that make a good manager.Thats what you hear: utility players, catchers, those are the guys that make good managers because they had to do a lot of the little things just to stay there. Well he did all those little things to be a Hall of Famer.Molitor was up for consideration for this job the last time the Twins were hiring, but he pulled his name from consideration in 2001 in part because Major League Baseball was contemplating contracting two franchises. Those efforts failed and Gardenhire led the team to six division titles in his first nine seasons of a 13-year career.Now the Twins are looking for a similar revival, and Molitor made it clear that he doesnt plan on being a part of a long-term rebuilding project.Im coming here to win, Molitor said. I think that its very important to lay that out there right from the start. Things can change very dramatically at this level very quickly.Molitor has never been a manager at any level, and he goes into this job knowing that the instincts and knowledge that made him such a great player will only take him and the Twins so far.I know what I know, and I think a lot of it is really good things, Molitor said. But you have to know where you need help. I think assembling a staff is going to be important thats able to fill some of those gaps for me, at least in the interim as we go forward, will be very, very critical. Its something that we plan to get started on.___Follow Jon Krawczynski on Twitter: Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
