Second Division leaders Ross County have confirmed Derek Adams as the club's head coach.
Derek Adams has helped steer County to the top of the table
Adams had been in temporary charge at Dingwall since Dick Campbell was dismissed on 2 October after just 12 games of the season.
County chairman Roy MacGregor told the club's website: "In Derek, we see an exceptional managerial prospect.
"He's motivated, hard working and, most importantly, he's committed to the cause of Ross County Football Club."
MacGregor said Adams had the ability to be a success at Dingwall.
"These qualities are what make him the right man to take this club forward and I look forward to working with him to achieve this," he said.
Adams will be assisted by the club's head of youth, David Kirkwood, and player-coach Stewart Petrie.
County are currently top of the Second Division, with 28 points from 13 games, four clear of Raith Rovers.
