"John impressed the interviewing panel with his commitment to excellence and his approach to moving the club up the league table.
"He expressed an enthusiasm for attacking football and was confident in his analysis of what we needed to do to succeed.
"John noted his own experience of playing against Argyle at Home Park and the advantage that the Green Army's passion gave to the home side.
"The Green Army has had a tough few years and deserves better: let's all get behind John and the team and make Home Park a fortress once more."
John Sheridan said: "I am very privileged to get this opportunity to manage the club.
"Everyone I've talked to says what a good club it is and what potential there is.
"I am very confident I can get us out of the position we are in if everyone - the players and fans - work together.
"I remember the support from the fans when I played down here with Leeds and Oldham, and that was one of the things that attracted me.
"From my time at Oldham and Chesterfield, I think I know what's required from the players and what we need to do to succeed."
