David Moyes has coached Manchester United, Real Sociedad and Sunderland since leaving Everton in 2013.
The Scotsman failed to last longer than a year at those clubs, but he has another chance at West Ham United.
The 54-year-old took over from Slaven Bilic earlier this month and has taken charge of two fixtures.
The first ended in a 2-0 loss to Watford, while the other – Moyes’s first home game – was a 1-1 draw with Leicester City.
On Wednesday evening, the Scotsman will return to Goodison Park, but will be on the oppositions bench.
Moyes spent 11 years as Everton manager, helping shape the club, and he will be disappointed by their current situation.
The Toffees sit just two points above the relegation zone after winning just three of their 13 fixtures.
The club remain without a permanent manager following Ronald Koeman’s sacking over a month ago, with David Unsworth temporarily holding the reins.
Ahead of the midweek action, Moyes spoke to West Ham’s official website about returning to Merseyside.
“I am personally really looking forward to going back to Everton. I’ve been back a few times and not been that successful on my other visits, so I’m hoping that this one can be.
“It’s a special place for me because of the years I spent there and also because of the people I worked with, many of whom are still there behind the scenes. I’ll enjoy going back but I’m only interested in West Ham now and getting a win for West Ham is all that matters.”
