In a move that once appeared on, but then hit a roadblock, Bayern Munich II will promote Danny Schwarz and Martín Demichelis to coach the club’s 3. Liga side per a release from FCBayern.com:

Just ahead of the 3rd division run-in, the officials at FC Bayern have made an important staffing decision. Danny Schwarz (45) and Martín Demichelis (40) will jointly take over the coaching duties of Bayern’s reserve team after Matchday 30, succeeding Holger Seitz. From that point, the 46-year-old will focus his efforts entirely on his position as sporting director at the campus.

As noted above, the move is complete and the duo will take over Bayern Munich II for the rest of this season and moving forward.

Sporting director Hasan “Brazzo” Salihamidizic gave his thoughts on the move that will see Holger Seitz return his focus to his duties as sporting director of Bayern Munich’s campus operations.

“After Sebastian Hoeneß left the club at short notice last summer for Hoffenheim, Holger Seitz agreed to take over the position as reserve team coach on an interim basis until we found a suitable successor,” said Salihamidzic. “So Holger has had an intensive dual role at the campus so far this season. We recently reached an agreement with Danny Schwarz and Martín Demichelis that the two of them would jointly succeed Holger from the 2021/2022 season. We’re now bringing this decision forward in the interest of everyone involved.”
