The Spaniard coach was sacked last week over poor results as Gabon won only two matches in their last 17.
The sacked Spaniard,Jose Antonio Camacho was dismissed by Gabon’s football federation last week.
The replacement, Aubameyang’s father, Aubame was a former captain of Gabon.
He had 80 caps for the Gabon national team from 1985 to 1998. He spent most of his career at French team Stade Lavallois. He also worked as a scout for A.C. Milan.
He comes on the saddle with another former captain, Daniel Cousin in what the Gabonese FA described as ‘co-coaches’.
Former captain Daniel Cousin has also been named as co-coach of the national team on Friday.
Cousin was a forward at Rangers and Hull City, previously acted as team manager in charge of logistics. Francois Amegasse, another former national team skipper, takes over Cousin’s role.
