Relegated Nantes bump Baup

PARIS - Nantes have parted company with coach Elie Baup after being relegated from Ligue 1.

Baup took over at Nantes last September but failed to help the eight-times French champions escape relegation for a second time in three years.

"Nantes and Elie Baup have decided not to carry on their collaboration," the club said in a statement late on Monday.
