According to Alan Nixon, Leeds coach Mark Jackson has been mentioned as a candidate for the vacant managerial seat at MK Dons.
Nixon claims that Jackson is being seriously considered by the club. The Leeds first team coach has been at the club since 2015. The ex-Leeds player initially joined the club as U15/16 coach, but rose up the ranks over the years. He served as Leeds’ U18 manager in 2016, U23 manager in 2020 and was promoted to first team coach by Jesse Marsch in March 2022.
MK Dons parted ways with Liam Manning just last week after 16 months in charge, and the club are looking for a new manager. Journalist Alan Nixon reported that Jackson, and former Wigan boss Leam Richardson are the frontrunners for the vacancy at the MK Stadium.
MK Dons will hold talks with several of the candidates, including Jackson, and are expected to make a decision soon. The League One side will reportedly make a final decision on their new manager in the next few days.
