Coventry City have appointed Micky Adams as their new manager.
Adams left Leicester in November
Ex-Fulham, Brentford, Swansea, Brighton and Leicester boss Adams replaces Peter Reid who left by mutual consent earlier in January.
Former Coventry defender Adams, 43, said: "This was a fantastic club to play for and I'm sure it will be a fantastic club to manage."
He added: "I've had two or three months off and now I'm looking forward to this and excited by the challenge."
Adams arrives at Highfield Road with the brief of saving the club, currently 20th in the table, from the drop.
Earlier this week Yeovil boss Gary Johnson rejected the chance to speak to Coventry about their vacancy.
Instead the Sky Blues opted for Adams, who will keep Reid's former number two Adrian Heath, who has been in caretaker charge, on as a reserve team manager.
"We've got to move the club up the table and I'm confident we can do that because there is talent here," said Adams.
"As I've said to the players this morning I haven't come in with any pre-conceived ideas about them because I don't know them, I've only seen them from afar.
"But what I would say is that we have enough quality to move up the table."
