Former Hearts boss Ian Cathro has been appointed first-team coach of Premier League newcomers Wolves.
Cathro, who spent eight months at Tynecastle, was Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo’s assistant at Rio Ave in 2012 and at Valencia. The pair met on a Scottish Football Association coaching course in 2009.
“I am very excited about joining Wolves and looking forward to working with a coach and staff I know, trust and believe in,” Cathro, 31, told wolves.co.uk.
“All of us share the same footballing philosophy and that is such an important factor for a successful coaching team.
“Wolves is a fantastic club with a rich history and lots of potential, and I can’t wait to get started.”
Cathro, who began his coaching career at Dundee United, has also been assistant boss at Newcastle and met the Wolves squad on Wednesday.
