Newcastle fires manager Chris Hughton

Newcastle has fired Chris Hughton so that it can install a more experienced manager.
Hughton steered Newcastle back into the Premier League after a season in the second-tier and his contract was due to expire at the end of the season.
Newcastle is 11th in the standings after 16 matches.
In a statement, Newcastle said Monday that "regrettably the board now feels that an individual with more managerial experience is needed to take the club forward."
Newcastle says "an announcement will be made shortly regarding transitional arrangements pending the appointment of a successor."
