Blackburn Rovers have confirmed the appointment of Archie Knox as Paul Ince's new first-team coach at Ewood Park.
The newly-installed Rovers chief was keen to surround himself with experience ahead of his first season in the top-flight and had already lured veteran number two Ray Mathias from his former club MK Dons.
Now Knox, 61, has also arrived at the Lancashire club where he will renew acquaintances with Ince.
The veteran Scot was Sir Alex Ferguson's number two during Ince's time as a player at Manchester United.
He was without a club after leaving the backroom staff at Bolton Wanderers following Gary Megson's arrival as manager midway through the last campaign.
'We are delighted to welcome Archie on board,' said Rovers chairman John Williams.
'Paul made it clear from the outset he wanted an experienced coach to work alongside him and there aren't many people out there with a better CV than Archie's.
'He's worked at the top level for most of his career and we believe we now have the perfect blend of youth and experience within our new-look managerial team.'
