The new Lilywhites manager and his backroom team succeed Cian O'Neill, who had been in charge since 2015.
Tyrone eliminated O'Neill's side from the 2019 All-Ireland qualifiers. Meanwhile, their Leinster challenge ended at the hands of All-Ireland finalists Dublin at the quarter-final stage.
O'Connor led Kerry to three All-Ireland titles across two spells as manager.
In his first spell, his sides lifted Sam Maguire in 2004 and 2006. He added the 2009 All-Ireland to his repertoire during his second spell in charge. O'Connor ended that four-year second spell in charge in 2012.
Since then he has managed the Kerry Minors as well as the Kingdom's Under-20 and Under-21 teams.
He led the Minors to back-to-back All-Ireland glory in 2014 and 2015.
