The 45-year-old arrived in Edinburgh on Saturday and was in the dug out as Hibs won in a friendly with Vale of Leithen. Having been a member of the coaching staff at Wigan, it was a decision which he did not take lightly.
"When Alan said there was a position for me here I had to seriously think about it because of where I was," he said. "I was at an English Championship club which, I am sure, will push on to the Premiership. But I thought Hibs would be a challenge."
