Dean Wilkins has been appointed manager of League One side Brighton on a permanent basis.
The former Albion captain, promoted from youth coach when Mark McGhee left earlier this month, has agreed a contract until the end of the season.
Dean White has been appointed as his number two but retains responsibility for scouting and recruitment.
Albion chairman Dick Knight said: "Dean Wilkins has convinced the board he has the makings of a very good manager."
Wilkins added: "I am extremely proud and humble to be given the opportunity to continue to make the necessary changes required to take the club forward in this transitional period."
