West Brom name Irvine head coach
West Brom have announced former Preston and Sheffield Wednesday manager Alan Irvine as their new head coach on a 12-month rolling contract.
The Scot will succeed Pepe Mel, who left the club by mutual consent the day after the Barclays Premier League season finished last month, once he "signs off" from his current role as Everton's academy manager.
Rob Kelly, who worked under Irvine at Preston and Wednesday, has also been appointed joint assistant head coach, alongside Keith Downing.
Albion technical director Terry Burton told the club's official website: "I'm delighted we have been able to secure the services of Alan and Rob."
