Hogg said: "Obviously I"m very pleased with the appointment. He has been there and done it in the game of rugby.
"He has a fantastic resume. All of the Edinburgh players in the Scotland squad are looking forward to meeting with him when we get back from the World Cup.
"I"m sure I"ll learn lots from working with him and that Edinburgh will go places. There are plenty of reasons to be excited ahead of our Heineken Cup matches."
After last weekend's heroic victory over Italy, Hogg is now bracing himself for the challenge posed by Argentina with a semi-final place at stake.
But even though Argentina knocked much-fancied Ireland out of the tournament last weekend, Hogg remains confident Scotland can upset the odds and secure a spot in the last-four.
Hogg said: 'they played very well against Ireland, but we are pretty confident and are looking forward to the game.
"We feel we know how we are going to attack, how they will attack and how we can counter them."
