Next Hibs manager: Former Newcastle coach 'emerges as contender' after Jack Ross departure
Current Scotland assistant boss and former Newcastle United coach John Carver has emerged as a candidate for the vacant Hibs manager’s position.
According to reports, the 56-year-old wants a return to full-time football and while enjoying being Steve Clarke’s right-hand man at the national team, would like to be his own man.
Carver has managed Newcastle on an interim basis on multiple occasions and has also been in charge of Torino, Toronto, Sheffield United and Omonia Nicosia.
New Hibs chief executive Ben Kensell is leading up the search for Ross’ successor. Kensell wielded the axe in the wake of Hibs’ 1-0 defeat to Livingston on Wednesday night, with the club taking just four points from the past 27 available as they slide down the cinch Premiership.
