Iachini, who has previously managed Sampdoria, Brescia and Chievo, replaces Serse Cosmi who was sacked following Sunday's 4-1 defeat at Fiorentina.
Siena are currently bottom of the table with 11 points from 17 games, having had six points deducted due to match fixing.
Iachini, who will be officially unveiled on Tuesday, told the club's website: "I promise to work with enthusiasm to achieve the goal of staying in Serie A."
