Smith said: “It’s been a whirlwind of seven days but I’m really happy to be back and working for Norwich City in the Premier League.
“Obviously there has been a great job that has been done at this football club over the past four and a half years. It is now my job and Craig’s to continue and improve this work with the ultimate goal of surviving in the Premier League.
“Norwich City are a great club, with a huge group of supporters who fully understand what it means to be a part of the club and its community.
“I was brought up in a time when Norwich was competing in Europe – I remember that time well and every time I visited Carrow Road and Norwich you can really feel the connection between the fans, the staff and the players. Together we all have to make Carrow Road a really tough place for visiting teams.
“Since the age of 16, I have been working in football. I think at that point I had four months of absence and I didn’t appreciate it. It’s great to directly find a club determined to be progressive.
