Wolves have appointed assistant boss Terry Connor as manager of the club until the end of the season.
Connor, who has been at Wolves since 1999, was assistant to Mick McCarthy at Molineux for the last four years.
And he has been in caretaker charge since McCarthy was dismissed on 13th February after Wolves suffered a 5-1 defeat at home to Black Country rivals West Bromwich Albion.
"This is a decisive step which creates certainty and the players are fully behind it"
- Steve Morgan
Wolves are currently 18th in the Barclays Premier League table with 13 matches left in the campaign.
"Since we made the difficult decision to part company with Mick, we have been through a diligent process of assessing potential candidates," Wolves chairman Steve Morgan told the club's official website.
"Having spoken to a number of people we have drawn that process to a close and myself and the board are unanimous that Terry is the right man to lead the club for the remainder of the season.
"This is a decisive step, which creates certainty, and the players are fully behind it.
"As a club, whether that be staff or supporters, we now all need to unite behind Terry and the players and secure as many points as possible over the next 13 games."
Connor is a former striker who played for Leeds United, Brighton, Portsmouth, Swansea and Bristol City.
The 49-year-old coached at Bristol Rovers and Bristol City before joining Wolves in 1999. He was promoted to assistant manager by McCarthy in 2008.
