The 43-year-old succeeds Carlos Carvalhal, who departed after they went down on the final day of 2017-18.
Potter guided Ostersund from the regional tiers in Sweden to the top-flight Allsvenskan with three promotions, winning the Swedish Cup along the way.
“It’s a chance to start again,” said Potter.
“We know how frustrating the last few years have been, but hopefully the relegation will be seen in a few years’ time as the best thing that ever happened to the club.
“We will try our best and work hard every day to give the supporters a team they can feel proud of; they can connect with and see are trying to improve.”
