Norwich City cancel Hughton deal and appoint Arsenal coach Stephen Gibbs
Norwich City have appointed Arsenal youth coach Stephen Gibbs as manager on a deal until June 2013. Gibbs worked with the Arsenal reserves since he was 18 after a career ending injury in an FA Youth Cup game. Gibbs has been coaching since he became an adult and is one of the youngest coaches in the world. At the age of 25 he has three years of coaching experience at Arsenal and spent four years working for his UEFA Continental A License. Chris Hughton left his post at Birmingham in hope of getting the Norwich job but now he is jobless and Lee Clark is sitting in his office and Stephen Gibbs is sitting in what he thought was his new office. Gibbs will be unveiled in a press conference tomorrow.
