The Board of Directors at Hartlepool United has made the decision to implement some changes at the Vanarama National League club.
Former player and caretaker boss Craig Hignett will now take charge of first-team matters, with recently-appointed manager Richard Money moving to a senior role overseeing football matters strategically.
Money was only brought in as manager on December 11th to replace Matthew Bates, while former Middlesbrough favourite Hignett has been working alongside Money on the training pitch.
He has already had one eleven-month spell in charge on a full-time basis before he left in January 2017 with the team struggling in League Two in hard financial times.
The task of bringing the club up to date in areas such as sports science and recruitment, not to mention the challenge of re-inventing the youth department during a season when the club are in its last year of funding from the EFL, is essential to address.
