Crystal Palace assistant manager Lennie Lawrence has hooked up with Dougie Freedman at Bolton.
Freedman moved from Selhurst Park in October to replace Owen Coyle, who was dismissed following Bolton's poor start to the campaign.
Lawrence spent 10 months in the number two role at Palace and the 64-year-old is best known for his time in charge at Charlton, Middlesbrough and Cardiff.
"I'm delighted to have been able to bring Lennie in," Freedman said.
"He has a wealth of football experience and knowledge which will benefit us greatly moving forward."
A statement from Crystal Palace read: "The board of the club would like to put on record their thanks to Lennie for all his efforts during his time at Palace."
The London outfit are currently looking for a replacement for Freedman and have placed Curtis Fleming in temporary charge of first team affairs.
Fleming will be assisted by development coach Jamie Fullarton and first-team captain Paddy McCarthy.
