Newcastle United today have confirmed that assistant manager Terry McDermott and reserve team coach Adam Sadler have left the club, and it looks like both have been sacked.
Kevin Keegan with Terry McDermott
Newcastle have also said today that Chris Hughton will take over as caretaker manager and will be assisted by Academy coaches Richard Money and Alan Thompson, starting with Saturday’s home game with Hull City.
McDermott has worked alongside many managers at Newcastle over the last 10 years, and has presumably been sacked, along with Sadler, who has only been in charge of the Reserves since January. Both men were key allies of Keegan.
Adam Sadler – Reserve Team Coach
Adam Sadler worked with the Newcastle Academy until 2006 before he was promoted to the first team coaching staff under Glenn Roeder, and was the Newcastle Reserves manager and of course a local lad. He was a popular up and coming coach at the club, and had done very well with the Reserves side at the end of last season.
Apparently the two coaches were told not to report to the training ground as usual this morning, and to make their way to St James’ Park where they were informed they had no futures at the club.
Both have clearly been given the sack, and this terrible soap opera of how Mike Ashley is wrecking the Newcastle United club, or at least trying to – continues.
