Barnsley have announced Austrian Gerhard Struber as the club's new head coach.
The 42-year-old replaces Daniel Stendel, who left in early October after guiding Barnsley to promotion to the Sky Bet Championship.
A statement on the club's official website said:
The appointment ends Barnsley's six-week search for a replacement for Stendel, with Struber tasked with keeping the South Yorkshire club in the second tier.
Barnsley chief executive officer Dane Murphy said:
Struber faces a tough task as the Reds are bottom of the table and five points from safety after failing to win a game since the opening day of the season.
