SAO PAULO (AP) — A third-division Brazilian team fired its coach just two days after officially introducing him.

XV de Jau announced Thursday that it got rid of coach Nem, who was introduced Monday. He was let go after the team's 3-1 loss to Flamengo in the third division of the Sao Paulo state championship on Wednesday.

The Globoesporte website said the coach appeared extremely upset in the locker room following the loss, which left the club near relegation zone.

Club president Jose Construtor said "the team didn't play well" and Nem "made poor choices." He added: "We need results, I'll find another coach."
