Nehra, 39, is no stranger to the set-up, having been appointed bowling coach last season and will share duties alongside Gary Kirsten.
“I had the privilege to join the coaching team of RCB last season and feel very passionately about the team. I want to thank the team management for considering me in a leadership position with the franchise and look forward to successful seasons ahead,” Nehra said in a statement after the announcement on Wednesday.
The ex-pacer brings plenty of experience to the role after playing in all three formats in a career spanning 18 years.
Royal Challengers Bangalore chairman Sanjeev Churiwala was delighted to have Nehra on board. “We are very happy to have Nehra join RCB as part of the coaching leadership team. Ashish and Gary will partner the captain to help the team deliver better performance,” he said.
