Augsburg have appointed Enrico Maaßen as their new head coach, the German making the switch from the Borussia Dortmund reserves.
The finer details of the agreement will be ironed out in the coming days.
"I'm happy to have the chance to prove myself and to be able to build something sustainable together in Augsburg as a team," said Maaßen. "I would also like to thank the people in charge of BVB for making the move possible."
Maaßen guided the Dortmund U23s to the Regionalliga West title in his first season in charge, before overseeing a ninth-placed finish in the 2021/22 3. Liga. He previously coached the Hansa Rostock reserves, as well as lower-league clubs Greifswalder, Verl, Goslarer, Drochtersen/ Assel and Rödingshausen.
"We've been following the development of Enrico Maaßen with real interest in recent years," commented Augsburg sporting director Stefan Reuter. "He's a young coach, who is hungry for success and wants to improve. He gives young players a lot of attention and has proven he can support them.
"In extensive and impressive talks, he expressed a clear vision of modern football that fits here at Augsburg and with our team. We're convinced he'll develop the team with an exciting brand of football, together with his human qualities. We're delighted he chose Augsburg over many other options for his next step."
