Seán Boylan, who led Meath to four All-Irelands in the 1980s and 1990s, will be a member of the backroom team for the Down under-20 footballers for 2021.
Boylan, who turns 71 on Saturday, led Meath to four All-Irelands in the 1980s and 1990s, as well as three National Football League titles and eight Leinsters.
The St Peter's Dunboyne clubman spent an impressive 23 years in charge of the Royals, before ultimately stepping down at the end of the 2005 season.
He faced Down once during his time in charge of Meath, with the Leinster county ultimately falling short in the 1991 All-Ireland final.
Boylan will have an advisory role under Conor Laverty, who was confirmed as the manger this evening.
Marty Clarke, an All-Star with Down in 2010, and Declan Morgan are also part of Laverty's team.
