London, Oct 11 (IANS) Aston Villa on Thursday announced the appointment of new head coach Dean Smith, with former England captain John Terry named as assistant head coach and Jesus Garcia Pitarch as sporting director.
Smith is joining the Villans from Brentford, replacing Steve Bruce, who was sacked earlier this month, reports Efe news.
Villa's chief executive officer Christian Purslow said: "These three appointments represent the start of a new era and direction at Aston Villa and we are delighted to secure their services after an extensive search."
