MILAN -- Gian Piero Gasperini is out as coach of Inter Milan after three disappointing months in charge of the Serie A club.

The club announced Gasperini's departure Wednesday, a day after Inter's humiliating 3-1 loss to newly promoted Novara. That defeat came less than a week after the club lost 1-0 to Turkish side Trabzonspor in the Champions League.

Inter thanked Gasperini for his work, adding that Daniele Bernazzani and Giuseppe Baresi coached the team in a training session Tuesday. There was no immediate word on his full-time successor.
