Rix had been at the Royals’ helm since being appointed head coach in February 2013.
Catlin was in charge of Evo-Stik League South Premier side Gosport Borough until last month.
He had only been back at Privett Park since October, having previously left in January of this year.
He had previous spells at Privett Park as assistant-manager to both Alex Pike and John Robson and is also a former player.
He has also been in charge at Andover, Wick, Fleet Town, and Chichester City.
