Norwich have confirmed that former goalkeeper Bryan Gunn will take charge of the side for the Coca-Cola Championship clash with Barnsley on Saturday.
The Canaries have been without a manager since the sacking of Glenn Roeder on Wednesday and have handed Gunn - whose current title is head of player recruitment - the reins on a temporary basis.
Gunn will be assisted by goalkeeping coach Tommy Wright and academy manager Ricky Martin.
He made 477 appearances for Norwich between 1986 and 1998 as well as winning six caps for Scotland before returning to the club in February 2007 in a liaison role.
On Thursday, the Irish Football Association turned down a request from the Carrow Road to speak to Northern Ireland manager Nigel Worthington over the vacancy.
A statement on the IFA's official website read: "Nigel is currently making preparations for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers and is fully focused and committed to his job as the Northern Ireland international manager."
Worthington spent six years as manager at Carrow Road, taking over in a caretaker capacity in December 2000 before being given a full-time contract a month later.
The former Sheffield Wednesday player led the team to a play-off final in 2002 where they lost out on penalties to Birmingham.
