pintado.jpgWith only eleven rounds of the Campeonato Paulista gone, ten of the league’s twenty clubs have already changed coach.

Noroeste were the first to act after they showed the door to José Carlos Fescina on 20th January. Fescina’s record: drawn one, lost one.

The latest to go was Pintado (photo) who resigned from Ituano on Sunday. He however, already has a new job after moving to the Anacleto Campanella and São Caetano.

Pintado, and Márcio Bittencourt who left Juventus for Noroeste, are the only coaches to have walked out on their clubs.

Last season, there were twenty-five coaching changes (not including caretakers).

Santo André were the biggest culprits going through four coaches in nineteen games. However, the club’s policy backfired and Santo André finished bottom.
