Newcastle assistant manager Terry McDermott and reserve team coach Adam Sadler have both left the Premier League club following the departure last week of manager Kevin Keegan.
McDermott, a former Newcastle player, had been taking first-team coaching since last week when the splits between Keegan and the board which led to the United boss's resignation started to come out into the open.
Keegan and McDermott have an association stretching back more than 30 years to the time when both men were players in the successful Liverpool teams of the mid-1970s.
Former England midfielder McDermott had been a coach at Newcastle since 1992 when Keegan first became manager of the north-east side.
McDermott served several St James' Park managers, including his former Liverpool team-mates Kenny Dalglish and Graeme Souness as well as Glenn Roeder and Sam Allardyce.
