Scottish Football Association have announced the appointment of Billy Stark as a national youth team coach.
Stark takes over in the role from Donald Park on July 1, and will be in charge of the Under-19s in addition to his involvement in the Performance department's various coach education programmes.
Stark was recently in charge of Lowland League side East Kilbride, but spent six years as Scottish U21 coach, and took charge of the senior squad for one game following the departure of Craig Levein in 2012.
The 61-year-old will be part of a team that includes Scottish FA Performance Director Malky Mackay and fellow national youth team coaches Brian McLaughlin and Scot Gemmill.
He said: "I'm delighted to be back. It was a bit out of the blue but I am really appreciative of the opportunity and grateful to Malky Mackay.
"I'm looking forward to taking the Under-19s and involving myself with the other work carried out by the Performance department.
"Donald did a great job and it's my hope to pick up where he left off."
