Appleton, 37, only joined Blackpool two months ago, taking charge of just 12 matches before Rovers moved in to name him as the successor to the sacked Henning Berg.
Blackburn will be Appleton's third club of the season after he led beleaguered League One club Portsmouth, while he will be Rovers' third manager following on from Steve Kean and Berg.
