Billy Brown says he is raring to go at Easter Road after being appointed as Hibernian’s new assistant manager, just a month after leaving his post as number two at rivals Hearts.
Jim Jefferies’ former right hand man will work alongside Colin Calderwood, as Hibs look to lift themselves off the bottom of the Scottish Premier League table.
The Edinburgh club are a point adrift with one win from their opening six games and go to Dunfermline Athletic in search of a victory on Saturday, with Brown relishing the prospect of returning to the dugout.
“It is a new challenge and a new chapter in my career and I'm looking forward to it, starting with the match at Dunfermline on Saturday,” said Brown
“I've still got lots of enthusiasm for the game and the ambition to do well. Now I want to help Colin to enjoy success this season.
“I think Colin has got a good chance of doing well at the club and hopefully my experience can assist him in achieving that goal.”
Brown replaces Derek Adams as assistant to Calderwood at Hibs, with Adams having left his post in the summer to return to his previous job as manager of Ross County.
