Norwich hired Chris Hughton as manager of the Premier League club on Thursday, a day after former manager Paul Lambert officially took over at Aston Villa. The 53-year-old Hughton comes to the Norfolk club from Birmingham. Lambert steered Norwich back to the Premier League during his two-year stint. Norwich finished 12th last season, four places higher than Villa. With Hughton in charge, Birmingham finished in fourth place in the second-tier League Championship last season. Hughton led Newcastle before moving to Birmingham a year ago.
