Former Newcastle manager John Carver is back in the game after agreeing to take charge of AC Omonoia Nicosia.
Carver departed Newcastle at the end of last season after ensuring Newcastle's top-flight status, a position relinquished in May when they were relegated to the Championship.
Omonoia finished fourth in Cyprus last season and will take part in the Europa League first qualifying round on June 30.
Carver, who worked with Bobby Robson and Alan Pardew during two spells at St James' Park, will link up with former Newcastle defender Nikos Dabizas, who is the sporting director of Omonoia.
A statement from Omonoia Nicosia read: "Our Association announces that it has agreed with the 51-year-old English coach, John William Carver, to take over the coaching of our team.
"Mr Carver is in America for personal reasons, but will break his journey to begin work immediately with our team, to start preparing for the new season.
"Mr Carver worked at Newcastle, where he served as head coach, and assistant coach, next to top coaches like Bobby Robson and Alan Pardew. He also worked at Leeds United, Toronto FC and Sheffield United."
