Munster head coach Tony McGahan's move to join Australia's coaching staff has been confirmed.
The Queenslander has been appointed in a new role as coaching co-ordinator under boss Robbie Deans, and will be joined in a new-look coaching set-up by Andrew Blades and Nick Scrivener.
The trio are set to be in place in time for the Wallabies' one-off Test against Scotland on June 5, before the three-match series against Wales, as Australia look to move on after last year's World Cup semi-final defeat to New Zealand.
"McGahan's experience as a head coach is considered a major asset for the newly created role, where he will have a significant involvement in the overall co-ordination of the coaching and management team, as well as the player liaison, assisting head coach Robbie Deans," an Australian Rugby Union statement read.
A Munster statement in February said that McGahan would leave the two-time Heineken Cup winners at the end of the current campaign after four seasons in charge.
McGahan will lead Munster into the RaboDirect Pro12 semi-finals next month after they confirmed their place with a 20-20 draw against the Scarlets on Saturday.
