Paul Scholes has been placed in temporary charge of Salford City after the League Two club dismissed Graham Alexander on Tuesday (AEDT).
The Manchester United legend had an ill-fated 31-day spell in charge of fellow fourth-tier club Oldham Athletic last year.
He is stepping in on a caretaker basis after Salford, unbeaten in the league this season, decided to terminate Alexander's contract after a reign that started in May 2018 and included promotion from the Conference National.
Scholes' first game at the helm of Salford, which surrendered a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with Tranmere Rovers on Sunday (AEDT), will come at Port Vale this weekend.
"Paul Scholes will act as the interim head coach while the club looks to secure a new manager. Warren Joyce, currently in isolation, will join Paul once he is able to," a Salford statement read.
The 45 year-old is one of the part-owners of Salford, with former United team-mates David Beckham, Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt and Gary and Phil Neville also invested in the club.
