Toulouse coach Justin Morgan has been appointed coach of National League side Hull Kingston Rovers.
The Australian-born Welsh international has guided the French club to the semi-finals of the Powergen Challenge Cup where they will face Leeds Rhinos.
Morgan succeeds Harvey Howard and will take up a two-and-a-half-year contract after the semi-final game.
He will spend a week at the club before Sunday week's Northern Rail Cup final with acting coach James Webster.
"Hull Kingston Rovers' infrastructure, playing squad and ambition impressed me greatly," Morgan told the club's website.
"I can't wait to work with a club that has genuine Super League aspirations not only with the calibre of players I will be working with but also with the future stadium development plans that will take place."
Hull KR chairman Neil Hudgell revealed the appointment had been made on the recommendation of Leeds coach Tony Smith and new St Helens boss Daniel Anderson.
"Justin's technical knowledge, his burning ambition to succeed and a desire to work at all levels of the club from the scholarship upwards are all attributes to admire," he said.
"He has excellent references from two of the most respected coaches in the game, Tony Smith and Daniel Anderson, and his background is of the highest pedigree."
