Peter Such has been named as the England and Wales Cricket Board's new national spin coach.
A former England and Essex off-spinner, Such has been promoted from his previous role as a part-time consultant and will take charge of spin coaching at the National Cricket Performance Centre at Loughborough.
Mushtaq Ahmed will continue to work with the senior national side, while Such will take charge of the coaching and development of players at England Lions and England Performance Programme level as well as on the county circuit.
His role is parallel to that of national batting coach Graham Thorpe.
David Parsons, ECB performance director, said: "We are delighted to appoint Peter Such as national lead spin bowling coach.
"Peter has also been in charge of the delivery of our Level 4 Spin module as well as coaching EPP and Lions spin bowlers including Danny Briggs, Scott Borthwick and Simon Kerrigan.
"His monitoring and identification of talented spin bowlers in first-class cricket is highly respected and he's played a major role in sending our leading young spinners to Sri Lanka to play first-class cricket to improve their games."
Hugh Morris, managing director of England cricket, added: "Peter's appointment is due recognition for the significant contribution he has made to our spin programmes and also re-emphasises the importance we place on developing a pool of talented spinners who can challenge for places in the England team in the future.
"Peter will be working across a number of our cricket development programmes to progress the art of spin bowling from playground to Test arena."
Such played 11 Tests between 1993 and 1999, taking 37 wickets at 33.56.
