Lancashire have named former skipper Glen Chapple as their new Head Coach on a three-year contract.
The 42-year-old was appointed acting head coach after predecessor Ashley Giles returned to Warwickshire to become their Sport Director.
Former Lancashire batsman Mark Chilton, 40, has been named assistant head coach.
"Mark and I are committed to delivering a team that the whole club, the members, the supporters and the county of Lancashire can be proud of," Chapple said.
"We have an incredibly talented and young group of players, and we are hugely excited about the coming season and few years ahead, and what we believe we can achieve."
"Mark and I are committed to delivering a team that the whole club, the members, the supporters and the county of Lancashire can be proud of,"
A one club man, Chapple made his first-class debut aged 18 in 1992 and went on to take 1,373 wickets in all formats during his playing career. As a more than capable lower order batsman he scored six first class hundreds.
2011 saw Chapple win the County Championship as captain of the red rose club, their first outright title in 77 years.
Lancashire’s opening Specsavers County Championship Division One fixture is with newly promoted Essex on April 7.
