Bergara gone as GK coach too.
Bet he'll teach Courtois a thing or two.

Apparently, Ralf Rangnick was one of the finalists for this job but Martinez beat him out.

Rangnick must sit around all day wondering what he has to do to get a job ahead of Martinez since this is the second time this has happened to him. I guess tactical nous doesn't count for much on the market.

Edit: I feel bad for Ralf because he kind of seems destined to be under-appreciated forever. He might not have gotten us in with Lukaku and Deulofeu, but I think he would have been a much better manager for us overall and he would have finally received some well-deserved appreciation outside of Germany.
He's probably not helped that you can't read his name in anything other than a Scooby Doo voice.
