Career Summary

Chris Hughton earned his second managerial job in the Barclays Premier League in June 2012 when he was appointed at Norwich City.

The Irishman made more than 300 appearances for Tottenham Hotspur during his playing career before turning to coaching in 1993, and he was a key part of the backroom staff at White Hart Lane until 2007.

A year after his departure from the North London club, he was appointed as First Team Coach at Newcastle United. After the Magpies were relegated from the Premier League in the 2008/09 season, Hughton was handed his first managerial role as the club looked to secure an instant return to the top tier of English football.

Hughton delivered the goods and the club won the Championship at the first time of asking. In their return to the Premier League in the 2010/11 campaign, Newcastle enjoyed a fine start to the season, before Hughton was relieved of his duties in December 2010 with the Magpies in 11th position.

A year-and-a-half later, Hughton was appointed as Birmingham City manager and he led them to the Championship play-off semi-finals during his tenure. His exploits in the second tier of English football earned him his second chance to manage in the Premier League with Norwich City ahead of the 2012/13 campaign.
