Madrid: Former Celta Vigo coach Fernando Vazquez has been named Deportivo la Coruna's third coach of the season after it was announced the football club and Domingos Paciencia were parting ways by "mutual agreement."

Former Sporting Club de Portugal (Sporting Lisbon) coach, Paciencia had offered to resign following his side's 0-3 home defeat to Granada Saturday. The result left them at bottom of the Spanish Primera Liga and with just one win and a draw from Paciencia's six games in charge since he was named as replacement for Jose Luis Oltra, reports Xinhua.

Club president Cesar Augusto Lendoiro had persuaded Paciencia to remain and had given him his support Saturday, saying: "We insisted that we did not want this at all. In the squad and board there is unanimity that the coach stays on."
