Essex head coach Chris Silverwood will replace Ottis Gibson as England's fast bowling coach, but he is not expected take over until after the Ashes.
Silverwood guided Essex to a remarkable Championship title this summer, the county's first for a quarter of a century, in their first season after being promoted from Division Two.
The former England, Yorkshire and Middlesex seamer will be the first Englishman in 11 years to oversee the national set-up's fast bowlers.
He takes over from the West Indian Gibson who left at the end of the summer to become the new head coach of South Africa.
England's Ashes campaign begins in three weeks yet the 42-year-old will not step into his new post until the new year, with former New Zealand pace bowler Shane Bond having already been appointed on a consultancy basis for at least the first two Ashes Tests in Australia.
Silverwood will also fulfil a commitment to work with the England's Lions squad during their training camp in Australia next month.
He was capped six times for England as a player, with his last appearance coming during the 2002/03 Ashes tour in Australia.
England are already training in Australia, with year's series set to start on 23 November in Brisbane.
