NOTTINGHAM, England -- After seven years in international football coaching, former England defender Stuart Pearce is returning to club management after agreeing to take charge of his old team Nottingham Forest from July 1.

Pearce played for Forest from 1985-97 and enjoys cult status at the City Ground, where he picked up the nickname "Psycho" for his tough-tackling approach that made him a fan favourite.

Forest, a two-time European champion, is currently seventh in England's second-tier League Championship -- two points outside the playoffs as it seeks a return to the Premier League for the first time since 1999.

Pearce, who succeeds the fired Billy Davies, was England's under-21 coach from 2007-13 and also spent time as assistant coach of the country's senior team and managed Britain at the London Olympics in 2012.
