Eintracht Frankfurt boss Kovac, 46, will replace Heynckes next season after Bayern announced a three-year deal for the Croatian Friday.
Just like when Guardiola succeeded Heynckes in 2013, Kovac could potentially start work after a treble-winning campaign, with Bayern having already secured the Bundesliga title, their sixth consecutive league crown.
The 72-year-old is in his fourth spell at the club, and could yet win the Champions League again.
His brother Robert, also a former Bayern player, will join him from Frankfurt as his assistant. "We exploited a hole he made in the contract with Kovac, which is very professional", Hoeness said, hinting at the reported €2.2 million ($2.7 million) release clause in Kovac's Frankfurt contract".
With Kovac now confirmed to take over Bayern from July, James' potential future with the club may be thrown into doubt - which would not be a good thing for either party.
At a news conference later Friday, the older Kovac said he had mixed feelings about leaving Frankfurt, but "not many coaches, not many players" get an opportunity at Bayern.
However, that prompted an angry response from Frankfurt after sporting director Fredi Bobic, who claimed that the timing of the announcement was "unprofessional and lacking in respect" and could be damaging to the team's form over the remainder of the season.
A Bundesliga and DFB Cup double victor with Bayern as a midfielder in 2003, Kovac was Croatia manager as recently as 2015 before taking up the reins at the Commerzbank-Arena.

Kovac was appointed at Eintracht in March 2016 and helped the club survive a relegation play-off that season before guiding them to a respectable 11th-place finish in 2017.
