Former Charlton and Huddersfield manager Chris Powell has combined England manager Gareth Southgate’s training staff.
The relocation is part of a Football Association programme designed to”solve the battle of under-representation” of black, black and minority ethnic (BAME) coaches.
This summer michael Johnson, who guided Guyana to their Gold Cup, will team up with the England Under-21s.
There are just five BAME directors in the top four branches of English football.
England caped five times former left-back Powell during his acting career. He had caretaker spells in charge of Leicester and Derby and has handled Southend United.
The FA has also declared that Matthew Thorpe, Marcus Bignot, Omer Riza and Jason Euell will operate with additional age-group sides.
The governing body states the aim of its elite coach placement programme, run along with the Professional Footballers’ Association, would be to”make sure the diversity of service team represent all players around groups, but also to continue to grow the ability pipeline of BAME coaches”.
Placements are set to run with much more to follow later in the summer as part of their FA’s equality action program, which was launched last year before Euro 2020.
“The PFA has helped us to recruit a talented team of trainers who will now bring their various experiences and skillsets to the England men’s player pathway for the entire year ahead,” explained FA technical manager Les Reed.
