NEWCASTLE, Australia (AP) - The Newcastle Jets have appointed ex-Adelaide United assistant Phil Stubbins as head coach for the next two A-League seasons.

The British-born Stubbins replaces Clayton Zane, who worked as interim head coach for the last 12 games of the 2013-14 season. Newcastle placed seventh in the 10-team league.

Stubbins was assistant coach at Adelaide United in 2008 when the Reds reached the Asian Champions League final and also competed at the FIFA Club World Cup.

He later worked at the Australian Institute of Sport and joins the Jets after a stint with Thai club Ayutthaya FC.

Jets chief executive Robbie Middleby says Stubbins “is an experienced coach who knows the A-League and … will bring a winning mentality to the club.”
