Bavaria's state justice ministry says Hoeness is allowed to leave prison during the day to work as of Friday, though he'll have to return in the evening — a common arrangement in Germany.

Bayern has said it hopes to give Hoeness a job in its youth department this month.

Hoeness was convicted in March of evading taxes through an undeclared bank account in Switzerland, and sentenced to 3 1/2 years in prison. He started serving his sentence in June.
