Ricky Piltz will coach Albury City in 2020.
It will be Piltz's first senior coaching role after more than 15 years of experience in junior grades right through to reserves at AWFA level and most recently Murray United.
He takes over from Matt Maw who held down the top job at City for the past five seasons.
Piltz will be assisted by Matt Hogan, who will also be a reserves assistant coach for Andrew Brown throughout the campaign.
Brown and his younger brother, Patrick, will coach City's thirds, with Aaron Young their deputy.

"Most of my coaching has been at Melrose, but my son (Isaac) and I came to Albury City last year and loved it," Piltz said.
"With the family being divided between AWFA and me at Murray, it was time to commit to one.
"I loved Murray United, it was awesome and (technical director) Adam Carty taught me a lot and now I've got the opportunity to take on my first senior role.
"It's a great club and a great bunch of kids. It's such a young senior team, so it's a good chance to do it."
Piltz revealed he received a few messages at the start of last season from Maw trying to get Isaac to the club and believes he could have had coaching plans brewing.
"I played all my juniors with Matty Maw and I like what he's done here, so it was a good chance to jump on board and add my touch to it as well," Piltz said.
"I think I can bring some fresh ideas that haven't been in AWFA by taking that NPL experience and the pace of the game and trying to implement it here."
Albury City has been around the mark the past five seasons under Maw, reaching the cup final in 2016.
"A couple of years ago they won the league championship in the reserves and the oldest player on the field is mid-20s, so it's a very good group that you can still teach and train and I'm looking forward to it," Piltz said.
"I've coached my young fella (Isaac) quite a few times and that's the good thing about having help with the other coaches, it doesn't have to always be me speaking to him.
"He doesn't mind taking some stuff off dad, especially the positive stuff, but when it comes to the criticism, the other fellas can step in and do that (laughs)."
