Neil Adams resigns from his post at Norwich City

Neil AdamsNorwich City are on the hunt for a new manager after Neil Adams resigned from his post. The 49-year-old, who only took permanent charge in May, departs Carrow Road after just nine months, with the club 7th in the Championship, and three points off the play-offs. Meanwhile according to reports Adams will return to the Canaries in some capacity this summer.

Adams originally took over back in April on a caretaker basis following the sacking of Chris Hughton, however he was unable to keep Norwich in the Premier League after picking up just one point from five games. Despite this the Canaries decided to place their faith in Adams and handed him a permanent deal.

The Norfolk outfit went on to enjoy a bright start to the current campaign, winning six of their eight matches in all competitions. But, from mid-September they suffered a sudden dip in form, scraping together just two wins from a dozen league games, which subsequently piled the pressure on Adams.

However, three wins and a draw in four games seemed to put the Norfolk club back on track, although recent back-to-back defeats to Reading (league) and Preston (FA Cup) has obviously triggered a nerve in Adams, who has become the first Championship manager in 2015 to throw in the towel. The former Norwich, Oldham and Everton midfielder now departs with a record of 11 wins, eight draws and 13 defeats, which equates to a win rate of 34%.

Mike Phelan

Meanwhile Norwich have confirmed that first team coach Mike Phelan will take charge of the first team while they search for a new boss at Carrow Road, with the likes of Phelan, Tim Sherwood, Ian Culverhouse and Karl Robinson featuring in the Next Norwich City Manager Betting at this early stage.
