Norwich have sacked Chris Hughton and his backroom staff after back-to-back defeats left them in a relegation dogfight in the Barclays Premier League.
Saturday's 1-0 home loss to fellow strugglers West Brom proved the final straw for the Norwich board, with a daunting run-in meaning their current five-point cushion over the bottom three offers little comfort.
The Canaries announced their youth coach Neil Adams, who guided the young Canaries to FA Youth Cup glory last year, has been named first-team manager.

The club said in a statement on their website: "Norwich City can confirm Chris Hughton, Colin Calderwood and Paul Trollope have parted company with the club with immediate effect - and former Canary winger and FA Youth Cup-winning coach Neil Adams has been appointed as first team manager."
Hughton previously managed Newcastle Utd and Birmingham City before being joining Norwich in 2012.
