Maloul, 54, is returning to a job that he had for seven months in 2013.
His first task will be against North African rivals Egypt in a qualifier for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations. Tunisia are in Group J, which also has Niger and Swaziland in the race for the tournament to be held in Cameroon.
Maloul enjoyed a career as a footballer in the 1980s and 90s, playing in Tunisia, Germany and Saudi Arabia. He later became a coach after retiring, leading Esperance de Tunis to the CAF Champions League title in 2011.
He will also oversee Tunisia's 2018 World Cup qualifying campaign. The Carthage Eagles are in Group A, where they are level on points at the top with DR Congo after two wins from two games. Guinea and Lobya are the other teams in the group.
