Former Norwich City manager Neil Adams has become a leading contender to get the Oldham Athletic job according to a report from the Oldham Chronicle.
The Latics have been looking for a new manager after John Sheridan left them after just a few months in charge to become the new boss of Notts County.
And now it looks like Oldham could be about to appoint another former player as their manager. Adams had been a winger for the Lancashire club during one of the best moments in their history when they played in the Premier League and is now reportedly very keen at becoming the new boss for Oldham.
Adams however will not bring much managerial experience with him though. He has only been a manager once and that was for Norwich City back in 2014. He was initially appointed on a temporary basis and was unable to stop the Canaries from being relegated to the Championship. He then became their manager on a permanent basis and despite a bright start the team soon stuttered and he resigned as head coach. He would return to Carrow Road and took up the newly created role of Loans Manager.
But Adams is keen to get back to management and this role with a former club could be perfect for him.
