Diego Maradona will coach Dorados after being appointed by the second-tier Mexican side on Thursday.
Maradona's last coaching job was with Al Fujairah in the United Arab Emirates, where the 57-year-old Argentine great left the second-division team in April, while he signed a three-year deal to become president of Belarusian outfit Dinamo Brest in May.
Maradona replaces Francisco Gomez, who oversaw a winless start to the Ascenso MX season following three losses and three draws in the opening six matches.
Dorados – formed in 2003 – find themselves joint-bottom of the table in the 15-team league.
Regarded as one of the all-time greats, Maradona – who scored 34 goals in 91 appearances and helped Argentina to World Cup glory in 1986 – has also spent time in charge of Mandiyu de Corrientes, Racing Club and Al Wasl.
