He joins from Hamilton Academical where he has been player-manager since April 2013.
The 33-year-old is the Canaries’ 39th different permanent manager, and the tenth Scotsman to take the reins at Carrow Road.
I’m absolutely delighted to have the opportunity to manage a club of the stature of Norwich – it’s an exciting challenge at a huge club and one that I’m looking forward to. I’ve watched a lot of Premier League and Championship football over the years and I’ve always been really impressed with Carrow Road and the Norwich fans and the way they get the place going when they get behind the team. It’s a forward-thinking club with a fantastic infrastructure and big ambition, which matches my own ambitions."
“It was important for us to have somebody who had the drive, ambition and commitment to work as hard as it takes to take the Club forward. Lots of names were under consideration, but for us, as the Board of Norwich City Football Club, he was the unanimous choice and the first choice.”
