Peter Reid has returned to football management after being confirmed as the new boss of League One side Plymouth.
The former Sunderland and Leeds manager has moved to Home Park from Stoke, where he was assistant to Tony Pulis.
The 54-year-old ex-Everton midfielder replaces Paul Mariner, who failed to prevent the club from relegation from the Championship last season, at the helm of Argyle, although the ex-England striker will stay on at Home Park as head coach.
Chairman Sir Roy Gardner said: "We said all along that we were seeking a man with proven experience who could help us realise our aspirations and ambitions. We want to get back to the Championship and after that move on. Peter fits that criteria perfectly."
