After working alongside Carlo Ancelotti at the Toffees, Ferguson reprised his role as interim coach in 2022 ahead of Frank Lampard’s appointment as manager following the sacking of Rafael Benitez.
Everton fans will be wishing icon Ferguson well in his new role
Indeed, it is his experience at Goodison Park alongside the likes of Carlo Ancelotti that has convinced the Inverness hierarchy that the Everton icon is the right man to turn their season around.
A statement on the ICTFC website states: “Duncan has worked alongside some of the most respected and outstanding football coaches in the world in recent seasons and we are proud to have him join ICTFC as our new Manager.
His professionalism, commitment and dynamic leadership skills shone through in our discussions, making him the stand out candidate.”
Ferguson’s first foray into management saw many Everton fans begin to follow the fortunes of Forest Green Rovers in support of the former centre-forward, and no doubt Inverness will gain plenty of new followers as well.
The only question remains, who’s sorting out a coach to Inverness?
