McDermott leaves Magpies

08 September 2008 03:21
Assistant manager Terry McDermott and reserve-team coach Adam Sadler have followed Kevin Keegan through the exit door at Newcastle United. The double departure comes just days after Keegan decided to quit the St James' Park hot-seat for the second time in his career. The pair had been taking training following Keegan's decision to step down citing a lack of control over the club's transfer plans. McDermott was a long-serving member of the backroom staff at the Tyneside club dating back to the time of Keegan's first spell as manager in 1992. The 56-year-old also worked under former bosses Kenny Dalglish, Graeme Souness, Glenn Roeder and Sam Allardyce. Sadler, a former youth team goalkeeper with Newcastle, was promoted from the academy set-up by Roeder in 2006. First-team coach Chris Hughton has now been handed caretaker charge of the Magpies. The former Spurs number two will be in charge for this weekend's Premier League clash with Hull City, where he will be assisted by academy director Richard Money and academy coach Alan Thompson.
