However, Hughton insists that will not include the addition of a football director.
"The backroom and scouting staff side of things does need building up again," said Hughton.
"It's very difficult to do some things when you're not a Premier League team. So much effort goes in to trying to achieve promotion, that you're left trying to do things in other areas, like scouting and technology, which you'd like to push on further, a bit later than everyone else. There are areas we're evaluating at the moment and whatever changes and additions we need, we'll certainly do.
"What I have been told is that there's absolutely no truth in the story (regarding a director of football). Some clubs have gone down that route - and when I worked at Tottenham Hotspur there was a director of football - but really, it's just a title. At some clubs the chief scout is in effect the director of football, at others it's the chief executive or the club secretary.
"It all depends on what the responsibilities are. Some directors of football have a bigger responsibility on the scouting side and some are more on administration and contracts. The role is quite varied but as far as I know it's not something we're doing."
