Stuart Murdoch has quit his job has Norwich City's goalkeeping coach - just three days after his appointment was announced.

The former MK Dons has reversed his decision to come to Carrow Road for personal reasons and the Canaries are now looking for another man to replace James Hollman.

“Stuart was with us earlier in the week but has now decided not to take on the role for family reasons,” said City boss Glenn Roeder. “We are therefore actively searching for a new goalkeeping coach as I speak.”

Murdoch had started work with City's goalkeepers at the beginning of the week and was at Bury on Tuesday night to help them prepare up for the FA Cup third round replay.

When he spoke to the press on Monday he appeared excited by the challenge or working with the likes of David Marshall, Matthew Gilks and rising stars Declan Rudd and Jed Steer, saying: “It's an unbelievable situation to come into - you don't often get the opportunity.”

Former City star and current club liaison officer Bryan Gunn is once again expected to work with the club's goalkeepers until a permanent coach is found, having helped out in the aftermath of Hollman's unexplained exit earlier this month.
