Trescothick will now step down as Somerset’s assistant coach and will take up the new role by the middle of March.
On the bowling front, have been named as the teams’ pace bowling and spin bowling coaches respectively.
Gloucestershire head coach Richard Dawson will step down from his role in April in order to fill Lewis’s shoes as the Young Lions head coach - a role that will be reconfigured into an elite pathway coach.
