DARMSTADT, Germany (AP) - Darmstadt says it has signed Norbert Meier as the coach for the next two Bundesliga seasons.

Meier succeeds Dirk Schuster, who left for league rival Augsburg.

Meier comes from the second-division club Arminia Bielefeld.

The former Werder Bremen player also won promotion to the Bundesliga as the coach of Fortuna Duesseldorf and Duisburg, and has also led Borussia Moenchengladbach and Dynamo Dresden.

Darmstadt surprised by remaining in the Bundesliga in its first season after promotion despite limited means.
