Former England batsman Graeme Hick will be Australia's assistant coach for the one-day tri-series against West Indies and South Africa in June.
Hick, 49, has been handed the post on a temporary basis while head coach Darren Lehmann takes a planned break. Justin Langer will coach the side.
Hick scored 3383 runs at 31.32 in 65 England Tests before retiring in 2008.
He has been working as a high-performance coach at Australia's centre of excellence since 2013.
The first of Australia's four matches in the series is against South Africa on 6 June in Providence.
