There was news widely reported yesterday that former Nottingham Forest manager Colin Calderwood had joined the coaching staff at Newcastle United, but it now turns out that was not true.

The Evening Chronicle contacted Calderwood today, to see if the news was indeed true, and Colin said:
“I have been out of the country and just returned.““I don’t know anything about this.”
“If I have been appointed as coach of Newcastle United then that is certainly news to me.”
Colin Calderwood is also thought to be keen on returning to management, and we thought this may have been a good move since Newcastle are very short of coaching talent, and have been since Keegan resigned.
Since Adam Sadler, our former Newcastle Reserves coach is now available, since leaving Norwich City with Glenn Roeder, when Glenn was sacked, it would be good to get the local lad back at Newcastle.
However, since Ashley sacked him and Terry McDermott a few days after Keegan left, maybe that will not be possible, but Adam is an excellent up and coming coach.
Joe Kinnear, though, is open-minded about bringing in backroom staff, and if he does finally accept the new contract offered to him, that would probably be the best time to bring in new coaches to the club.
“It’s something I’m monitoring at the moment.”
“We’re both doing the best we can but there might be someone else comes in.”
