Anthony Daly will take the reins as senior hurling manager at Kilmacud Crokes, succeeding his former Clare team-mate Ollie Baker, who had been in the role since 2013.
Former Tipperary hurler Richie Stakelum and ex- Kilmacud player Adrian Crean will be part of his backroom team.
In August, Daly stepped down from his director of coaching role at the Limerick underage hurling academy.
The Clare man, who won All-Ireland titles with Clare in 1995 and '97 as a player, guided Dublin to a Leinster title as a manager in 2013.
During his six-year tenure as Dublin hurling manager, he was credited with helping grow the game in the capital.
With Baker at the helm, Kilmacud Crokes were crowned county hurling champions in 2014, but have lost the last two finals to Cuala.
