Zaugg, 50, who failed to keep FC Luzern in the top flight this season, replaces Marco Schällibaum as coach after his departure to Servette FC last month.

Gress assistant
Zaugg led Grasshopper-Club from 2000-2002 and was also assistant coach when Gilbert Gress was in charge of Switzerland's attempt to reach UEFA EURO 2000™.
