New Hibs boss Pat Fenlon has confirmed that Billy Brown will stay on as his assistant at Easter Road.

Former Newcastle United midfielder Liam O'Brien has also joined Fenlon's coaching staff.

Hibs have confirmed that first-team coaches Gareth Evans and Alistair Stevenson have both been relieved of their duties.

"Billy possesses an incredible knowledge of the Scottish game," said Fenlon.

"We all share a huge passion for the game and a desire to create a winning culture here at Hibernian."

O'Brien, who also starred for Manchester United and the Republic of Ireland, previously worked with Fenlon as a coach at Bohemians.

"The strengths that Liam brings will be extremely valuable to the club," Fenlon added.

Fenlon was appointed last week, replacing the sacked Colin Calderwood.

Brown oversaw the first team for two matches, including Saturday's 3-1 defeat by St Johnstone.

Stevenson and Evans took charge of one match last season before Calderwood's appointment as boss, a 2-1 home win against Kilmarnock.

The pair will leave the club with immediate effect as Fenlon starts to build his own coaching team.

A club spokesman said: "On behalf of everyone at the club, the board would like to record their sincere thanks for the commitment, dedication and professionalism that both Gareth and Alistair have demonstrated in their time at Hibernian, and wish them all the very best in their future careers."
