Holtz, 48, was scheduled to be formally introduced at a press conference Friday evening.
Holtz replaces Sonny Dykes, who left the Bulldogs to take the Cal head coaching job.
Holtz is the first head coach who was fired this season to land another head coaching job.
Holtz went 16-21 in his three years with the Bulls, who won just three games this season.
