Jocky was co-manager when Aberdeen won the cup double in 1989-90, and the image of him on the Hampden track when Paul Mason scored the winning goal against Rangers in the Skol Cup final will live long in supporters' memories.
The former striker also played over 50 times for the Dons, scoring 17 goals including a hat-trick against Rangers in the semi-final of the League Cup.Aberdeen boss Craig Brown told RedWeb: "We are delighted to be adding Jocky to the coaching staff here at Pittodrie. His expertise in the game is unrivalled and he will undoubtedly enhance the high level of coaching we already provide our players here.

Chief Executive, Duncan Fraser added: "This appointment will also enable Neil Cooper to dedicate 100% of his efforts on developing the U20 squad.
