Paul Collingwood will lead England in their Test series against West Indies following Chris Silverwood's sacking.
The ECB has made big changes following a humbling 4-0 Ashes defeat to Australia, with Silverwood and assistant Graham Thorpe following managing director Ashley Giles out of the door.
But Collingwood, another assistant, has remained in place and will take charge for the three Tests, as he did for last month's T20I tour.
After the ECB confirmed his short-term appointment on Monday, Collingwood said: "I am genuinely excited to be leading the Test team for the tour of the Caribbean. I can't wait to get started.
"Having a challenging Test series against the West Indies straight off the back of the Ashes disappointment gives us a chance from now to reset and rebuild.
"Playing Test matches for England is the highest accolade in the game. My objective is to give players clarity, direction and encouragement for them to start building something special.
"I have spoken to Joe Root and Ben Stokes, and both are excited and passionate to take the team forward in this new cycle. Although they know it won't be easy, they have the desire and bravery to do things differently to ensure the team can prosper.
"We have an opportunity to get back on track."
The England squad is set to be named later this week, with Collingwood to join them in Antigua on February 25 following a break in Barbados.
