Warwickshire outfit Town made the announcement on their official website earlier today.
Wilson, who recently took Ilkeston to the Northern Premier Division playoff final, has signed a two-year contract with Boro.
Town will feature in Conference North in the 2015-16 campaign after suffering relegation this season, and former Derby County and Notts County striker Wilson will have his work cut out.
Evtimov, though, believes that Wilson is a good managerial appointment for Boro and claims that it was a mistake from Ilkeston to let the 54-year-old go.
I am happy to hear that Kevin Wilson is the new @Official_NTFC manager! I think it was a massive mistake from Ilkeston to let him go!— Dimitar Evtimov (@DimiEvtimov) May 5, 2015
Forest goalkeeper Evtimov has played for both Town and Ilkeston. The Bulgarian played for the former on loan from Forest in 2011 and for the latter - again on loan - in 2013.
Evtimov has been on the books of Championship outfit Forest since 2011, when he joined them from Bulgarian club Chavdar Etropole.
