Aidan O’Brien was ratified as the new Wexford senior football manager at a county board meeting on Tuesday night.
The Westmeath man replaces the outgoing Jason Ryan and is expected to meet with the Wexford players next week.
Ryan told the Irish Examiner: "I hope all lads stay on and maybe we can look at emerging talent.
“The door is open to everyone and I haven't made any prejudgement. It's very much an open door policy."
O’Brien is deputy principal at Good Counsel, New Ross, who he led to All-Ireland Colleges SFC honours in 1999, while he also led Horeswood to two county titles in a row last year.
