"Gary, who has signed a contract which will run initially until the end of the season, will take charge with immediate effect with his first game as manager being Saturday's Blue Square Bet Premier trip to Woking.
"Grant Brown and Chris Moyses, who have overseen first team affairs for the last two fixtures, will provide support to Gary, who returns to Sincil Bank having previously spent four successful years at the club as assistant to Keith Alexander."
Simpson's appointment means he returns to the club he left in 2006. Having been appointed in 2002 as Keith Alexander's assistant, he helped lead the club to four consecutive spells in the League Two play-offs.
