Manchester United have confirmed the appointments of Steve Round as assistant manager, Chris Woods as goalkeeping coach and Jimmy Lumsden as coach.
The trio join David Moyes, who officially began work at Old Trafford on Monday, in moving to United from Everton.
“I have worked with Steve, Chris and Jimmy for a number of years and I am delighted they have decided to join me at this great club,” said Moyes.
“They bring great qualities in their respective fields and I know that, like me, they feel that this is a challenge to relish.
“I have great faith that together, we can build upon the success this club has enjoyed over many years.”
Round, 42, joins United after working alongside Moyes at Everton since July 2008.
The 53-year-old Woods, who was a player was a member of the England World Cup squads in 1986 and 1990 and for the squads for the European Championships in 1988 and 1992, has been the goalkeeping coach at Everton since 1998.
Lumsden, 65, has worked with David Moyes since his days at Preston North End and subsequently at Everton.
United executive vice chairman Ed Woodward added: “I believe with David and his new team in place, along with our current backroom staff, we can now start preparing for the new season ahead.
“This is an exciting and challenging time for the club and I have great belief that David and his team will have all the energy and attributes needed to help this club continue in its long-standing traditions.”
