Mel has signed an 18-month contract and takes over from Keith Downing, who took charge of the team for five games after Steve Clarke was sacked last month.
Spaniard Mel will be supported by Downing and Dean Kiely, who are continuing as Assistant Head Coach and Goalkeeping Coach respectively.
His first game in charge will be at home against Everton on Monday 30 January.
