Queens Park Rangers have announced the addition of Glyn Hodges to the club's coaching staff.
The Barclays Premier League side have brought Hodges on board as Head of Coaching and Coach Education.
"This is another key appointment for QPR"
- Mike Rigg
The 49-year-old Hodges has worked with QPR manager Mark Hughes before at Blackburn Rovers, Manchester City and Fulham and they will link up once again.
Hodges will work alongside Steve Gallen and Marc Bircham in west London and he will oversee the coaching structure at reserve and academy level, working closely with Technical Director Mike Rigg.
"This is another key appointment for the club," Rigg told QPR's official website.
"We are building for the future, as well as the present at QPR, and Glyn's arrival further strengthens what we are trying to achieve here.
"He is a vastly-experienced coach, who knows the manager and his backroom staff, so we are all delighted to have him on board."
Hodges made 51 Premier League appearances in the 1990s for Sheffield United and Nottingham Forest, scoring six goals in the process.
