Former Leeds coach sacked by League One side

Former Leeds United coach Mark Jackson has been sacked by Milton Keynes Dons.

MK Dons were relegated on Sunday after a 0-0 draw with Burton Albion. The 45-year-old coached many youth sides at Elland Road from U17 to U21. He was promoted to the first-team coaching under Jesse Marsch. Jackson left the club in December to take over League One side MK Dons, but was unable to keep them in the division.

The statement from MK Dons reads: “Milton Keynes Dons Football Club have parted company with Head Coach Mark Jackson. Robbie Stockdale and Aaron Dagger will also depart the Football Club.

“MK Dons would like to thank Mark, Robbie and Aaron for their efforts during their time at Stadium MK. Chairman Pete Winkelman will meet with the media on Thursday to address the Club’s relegation to Sky Bet League Two and to discuss next steps for MK Dons.”

Jackson only managed six wins from 25 games in all competitions.
