"The York City board of directors welcomes Nigel Worthington to the club and looks forward to working with him."
Worthington started his managerial career at Blackpool in 1997 before an impressive spell at Norwich, where he led the club to the Premier League in 2003/04.
He took over as Northern Ireland manager in 2007 and stayed in the position until 2011.
