Former New Zealand Test batsman Mark Greatbatch has moved up from his academy role at Warwickshire to become the county's new director of coaching.
Greatbatch scored over 2,000 runs in 41 Tests
He first coached at Central Districts in New Zealand before moving to England to coach at Giggleswick School.
Warwickshire chief executive Dennis Amiss said: "We are all delighted that Mark has accepted this position."
Greatbatch, who succeeds Australian John Inverarity, has been given a three-year contract at Edgbaston.
Warwickshire won the County Championship in 2004 and reached the final of the C&G Trophy during the past season.
Amiss said: "We look forward to Mark moving the team and the club forward over the next three years."
In his Test career, Greatbatch scored more than 2,000 runs in 41 Tests, including a debut century against England at Auckland in 1988.
