Newcastle United head coach John Carver

Newcastle United have announced John Carver will remain as head coach until the end of the season, BBC reports. Alan Pardew’s former assistant, 50, will take charge of the team for the final 16 Premier League games. The Newcastle board will seek a permanent successor in the summer. “Having explored at some length the options available to us, the decision has been taken to defer the appointment of a permanent head coach until the end of the season,” read a club statement.¬†¬†Pardew left to take charge of Crystal Palace earlier this month, with Newcastle since drawing one and losing three games under Carver. “The head coach will be a long-term appointment that will play a major role in shaping the future on-field progression of Newcastle United,” the statement added. “It is vitally important that we get the right individual.” Carver said: “This is a proud day for me. I have worked with, and learnt from, the best manager that this football club has had in Sir Bobby Robson. I know what this club means to this city and its people.”
