Former Reds manager Kenny Dalglish believes Clarke is a perfect fit for the Baggies, who have finally found Roy Hodgson's successor.
Numerous candidates were linked to the Hawthorns hot-seat, including German tactician Ralf Rangnick.
But chairman Jeremy Peace has plumped for Clarke, who spent last season aiding Dalglish at Anfield, but left his assistant manager's role in the wake of the Scot's sacking and arrival of Brendan Rodgers.
Dalglish believes the Baggies have made the right choice.
"Steve Clarke was a fantastic assistant boss to me at Liverpool," he told the Daily Record of a man who has also held coaching positions at Newcastle, Chelsea and West Ham.
"The players all respected him and enjoyed their training with him.
"It's a great move for him and for the club.
"It's the perfect place for him to start out as boss because of the stability of the club.
"In some ways, the job there is a head coaching position and it will allow him to continue with something he does brilliantly.
"At the same time, he can ease himself gently into the role of managing a football club.
"I'm glad he's getting fixed up. He is an asset to any club."
