Swindon have named Phil Brown as their permanent manager on a two-year contract.
The former Hull and Southend boss took over at the The Energy Check County Ground for the final 10 games of the season and helped the Robins to a ninth-place finish in Sky Bet League Two, ending the campaign with a 3-0 home win over champions Accrington.
"The football club are delighted to announce that we have agreed a two-year deal with Phil Brown to become our new manager," Swindon Town Chairman Lee Power told their official website.
"We had a very good meeting on Tuesday evening and we spent a day going through budgets and personnel for next season, which we finalised today hence the delay in making this announcement.
"One of the key reasons behind appointing Phil on a permanent basis was that I feel the club needs some stability, which he gives us in abundance.
"We were obviously disappointed not to make the play-offs last season and no one more so than Phil.
"This deal gives Phil an opportunity to put his own stamp on the team and, with his record and experience in management, I think he'll help bring this club success over the next two years."
