Steve Thompson has been appointed first team coach at Preston North End ahead of the 2015/16 season.
Thompson joins Simon Grayson's backroom staff once again, after working under him at Blackpool, where the pair won promotion to the Championship.
The pair's first footballing partnership came at Leicester City, when both men represented the Foxes as they earned promotion to the Premier League in 1994 via the Championship Play-Offs.
Most recently, Thompson was assistant manager to Neil Redfearn at Leeds United, playing a major part in their improved form during 2015, before leaving the Club.
Bringing a wealth of experience to the role, Thompson is an exciting addition to the team at PNE.
