Northampton Town have appointed Andy Todd as the club's new assistant manager.
Todd, who had a spell on loan at the club as a player in the 2008/09 season, also represented Middlesbrough, Swindon Town, Bolton Wanderers, Charlton Athletic, Grimsby Town, Blackburn Rovers, Burnley, Derby County, Oldham Athletic and Hereford United as a player, while he has also been assistant manager at Linfield and Newport County and in October 2016 he was appointed the first team coach at Blackpool and helped the Seasiders win promotion from League 2 during his first season.
"Andy is a key addition and I am delighted to have him alongside me as my assistant," said manager Dean Austin.
"Andy is someone I know well, he has a wealth of experience in the game and has all the qualities to help us improve our talented squad.
"The fact that we have been able to bring him to the club is very much our gain. He played a big part in what was generally a successful time for Blackpool as he helped them win promotion from League 2 as recently as 2017 and then helped them consolidate in League 1 last season.
"He has great knowledge alongside that recent experience of getting out of League 2 and he and I are both very excited by the challenge ahead this season."
