Everton Academy boss Alan Irvine is to depart Goodison Park to take over at West Brom.
The 55-year-old Everton academy manager will remain at Finch Farm as a hand over process takes place, but Everton will also use his departure as a good time to restructure the clubs set-up.
Everton boss Roberto Martinez has made it clear that he isn't just interested in first team affairs and wants to set-up Everton his way, through every level at the club.
Irvine will take over at West Brom following a poor period in charge for Pepe Mel.
"I`m delighted we have been able to secure the services of Alan," said West Bromwich Albion technical director Terry Burton to the Echo.
He continued: "From the outset, we decided to pursue candidates who are renowned for their coaching ability and Alan was very much at the forefront of our thoughts because of his achievements in the Premier League and the high regard he is held within the game.
"In the end it came down to two outstanding candidates for the role.
"But, following a detailed recruitment process, we decided Alan and the team around him are best suited to tackle the challenges we face in the Barclays Premier League.
"He has a vast knowledge from grassroots up thanks to the roles he has performed during his decades in the game and knows what it takes through good and testing times."
