Weir worked with Stubbs at Everton last season.
â€śItâ€™s a great opportunity for him,â€ť Stubbs told evertonfc.com. â€śItâ€™s not going to be an easy job but itâ€™s a fantastic chance to go and weâ€™ll see what he makes of it now.
â€śDaveyâ€™s target this season will be promotion and the fans there will demand that because itâ€™s a big club in League One and they want to be back in the Championship and then the Premier League.
â€śIt will be tough but itâ€™s a challenge that he will really relish.â€ť
