The 41-year-old spent another five years with Hatters, becoming first teacm coach and assistant manager to now Cambrige boss Richard Money.
He was also caretaker manager of the club on three occasions before leaving at the start of pre-season this year.
U’s director of football, Jez George said: “We have been running with a minimal number of staff in our football operation for some time and this is the right time to make this appointment.
“I have met Alan on several occasions over the last few months and he has watched a number of our games.
“He brings a wealth of experience, he is a real football man and Richard has worked with him previously.
“In essence, he ticks every box in the qualities we require for this position.”
“Alan will fit in perfectly within our structure and will add value to our existing staff, particularly in assisting Richard on the training ground.
“He buys into the ethos and philosophy we have at the club and will be a valuable addition to Richard.
“We have built a really strong football staff and Alan will add his own areas of expertise and knowledge to this mix.”
