Stiles, who appeared 96 times for the Queenslanders during an eight-year period, had been working with the Western Force.
Stiles, who has also had spells coaching with the University of Queensland and Japanese Top League club Kubota Spears, will now team up with former Force head coach Richard Graham.
"Nick gave many great years to Queensland as a player and he now has an opportunity to continue his service to the club in a coaching capacity," Graham said.
"He is someone who is very highly regarded by his peers and as a former Queensland and Wallaby prop has been able to use his knowledge and experiences as a player into being a successful coach.
"Nick's made a positive impact everywhere he has been and he has a proven track record in getting results. When he began at the Western Force he took what was the 11th-ranked set-piece from 2010 to the third-ranked set-piece in the competition during his first year.
"I'm confident he has all the attributes needed to have a positive influence at the Reds and we look forward to Nick joining our team for 2014."
