<b>BERLIN (AP) - The soccer referee who was convicted in Germany's match-fixing scandal is about to switch to American football.</b>

Robert Hoyzer may get another career as kicker for the Berlin Adler (Eagles), a former champion in the German football league.

"I've been practicing for a week and I hope to sign a contract next week," Hoyzer said Thursday.

Hoyzer was found guilty in November of taking bribes to fix matches and was sentenced to 29 months in prison. He remains free pending an appeal.

The former referee said he saw "no future" in soccer anymore and decided to try out as a kicker because the position suited his abilities.

Hoyzer continues to play soccer in a Berlin church league.

When I read the title, I thought maybe they were contemplating asking Roman Gabriel to come back for one more year. :-B
