Ian Butterworth has been appointed reserve team manager at Hartlepool.
The former Norwich City defender, 42, has been assistant boss at Cardiff and Darlington and worked at the World Cup for the Football Association.
"It's a fantastic appointment for the club," Pools boss Danny Wilson told his club's website.
"I am sure he is going to be a real asset for us. The fact that he has been to the World Cup helping the FA speaks volumes," he added.
