Alex Neil was appointed as Norwich City manager in January 2015, joining the Club from Scottish Premiership side Hamilton Academical.
Taking the reins at New Douglas Park in April 2013 at the age of just 31, Neil guided the Accies to promotion to the top flight via the play-offs in his first full season in charge while also continuing his playing career as a central midfielder.
Born in Bellshill near Glasgow, he initially broke into the Airdrieonians side as a 19-year-old before crossing the border to sign for Barnsley in 2000.
Across four seasons at Oakwell he made 128 appearances, scoring four goals, ahead of returning to Scotland with Hamilton where he was named as captain prior to taking over in a player-manager capacity following Billy Reid’s 2013 departure.
Neil is Norwich City’s 39th different permanent manager, and the tenth Scotsman to take the reins.
First Team Coach
Gary Holt linked up with the Canaries for the third time in June 2014 as he assumed the role of First Team Coach.
After four years at Carrow Road as a player and another spell as Professional Development Coach, Holt left his job as manager of Falkirk to join the senior staff at Colney.
A tireless central midfielder, Holt began his professional career at Kilmarnock before signing for Norwich City in 2001.
He played 168 times before going on to have further spells at Nottingham Forest, Wycombe Wanderers, Colchester United and Lowestoft Town.
Holt left his role in City's Academy in April 2013 to take the managerial reins at Falkirk, leading the Bairns to a 3rd place finish in the Scottish Championship is his solitary season at the helm.
The Club confirmed the appointment of Tony Parks as goalkeeping coach in July 2014.
Parks has an exceptional pedigree in the game having spent the last six seasons in the same role at Tottenham Hotspur, tutoring France’s World Cup stopper Hugo Lloris among others, and he was awarded the Goalkeeper Coach of the Year at the FA Licensed Coaches’ Club Awards just last year.
He began his playing days as a goalkeeper at Spurs in 1980, and famously won the hearts of the supporters with his penalty saving heroics in the 1984 UEFA Cup Final against Anderlecht.
Lengthy and successful spells at Brentford and Falkirk were the highlights of a nomadic 22-year career that concluded in 2002.
His enthusiasm for the game quickly led to him becoming a ‘keeping coach, with stints at several league clubs preceding a long spell with the FA, where he oversaw the progress of England’s young stoppers.
Parks stayed with the FA until 2008, when he was approached by Harry Redknapp to move to White Hart Lane. He left that position in May 2014 this year following the appointment of Mauricio Pochettino as manager.
Ricky Martin joined the club he represented as an Associate Schoolboy in 2001 when he moved from Cambridge United to take up the position of Assistant Academy Director.
In May 2004 he was promoted to become Academy Manager, and spent the following decade overseeing the progression of a number of Norwich City youth players into the first team.
Reverting to his current role in the summer of 2014 following the creation of the Football Executive Board, Martin forms a key part of the support staff working alongside the manager.
Director of Football Recruitment
Barry Simmonds joined City in July 2014 to form part of the newly-introduced Football Executive Board.
Prior to arriving at Carrow Road, Simmonds worked alongside Canaries Chief Executive David McNally during a seven-year stint at Fulham which also saw him form a close partnership with current England manager Roy Hodgson.
During his career, he has also spent time abroad working as both Director of Football and interim coach at A-League outfit New Zealand Knights.
