Louis van Gaal has been appointed Holland coach until the 2014 World Cup, the Dutch Football Association (KNVB) have announced.
It marks the 60-year-old's second spell in charge of the national time, having also led them between 2000 and 2002.
Van Gaal takes the reins from Bert van Marwijk, who stepped down last week following Oranje's disappointing Euro 2012 campaign.
"I am pleased the KNVB have approached me," Van Gaal said on the Dutch FA website. "This is the challenge I have waited for."
