Colin Lee will return to Torquay United to assist manager Lubos Kubik as the club look to move away from the League Two relegation zone.
Lee will help Torquay's bid to beat the drop
Former Millwall boss Lee was a Torquay player during the 1970s before leaving to join Tottenham for £60,000.
He returned to the club as manager in 2001 and prevented the Gulls dropping out of the Football League with a final-day 3-2 victory at Barnet.
Lee will be in place ahead of this weekend's visit of Bury.
