Deschamps to take over as Marseille coach

Didier Deschamps will take over as Marseille coach from Eric Gerets next season.
Marseille announced on its Web site Tuesday that Deschamps, a former France midfielder, has agreed to a two-year contract and will start in June.
Gerets announced last week that he was quitting the club, which is closing in on its first league title since 1992.
Deschamps was part of the Marseille team that won the 1993 European Cup _ the only French club to do so _ and he won the World Cup with France in 1998 and the European Championship in 2000.
