During the 2000–01 English football season, Norwich City F.C. competed in the Football League First Division.

Season summary[edit]

Rioch's successor, Bryan Hamilton, lasted in the job for six months before he resigned with the club 20th in the First Division, and in real danger of relegation to the third tier of English football for the first time since the 1960s.[1] The new appointee was Nigel Worthington,[2] who had been Hamilton's assistant manager and he successfully steered the team away from the threat of relegation to finish mid-table.
