The 46-year-old holds a UEFA Pro Licence and has vast experience having managed clubs in Europe and in the Asia. He will be in charge of Hearts for the next two years.
Matic has handled Serbian sides Napredak Krusevac, OFK Beograd, Novi Pavar and FK Sloboda Uzice and Bulgarian club Septemvri Sofia.
He has also coached in Qatar where he was in charge of Al-Shamal SC and Al Ahli Doha.
Matic previously worked in Saudi Arabia where he was head coach of Al-Nojoom FC in a short-term spell.
During his days in China, he was assistant coach of Nantong Zhiyun FC and Henan Jianye.
