jack taylor leeds united manager Jack Taylor as a player enjoyed success at Molineux under the managership of Major Frank Buckley. Playing at full back he also played for Norwich, Barnsley, Watford and ended his playing days at Hull. Barnsley born Taylor was manager of QPR before before Sam Bolton the Leeds chairman acquired his services. Taylor was in fact Bolton's third choice for the job, he wanted primarily Headington's Arthur Turner who turned it down at the eleventh hour and again Former Leeds captain Tommy Burden, turned the job down after it was offered to him.
Taylor finally got the post and his first unenviable task, was to finalise the departure of two Leeds United favourites. Jimmy Dunn and Eric Kerfoot who were past their best.
Taylor focused on nurturing new talent, he brought in coach Syd Owen and trainer Les Cocker but for all their efforts Leeds United slid down the table and were relegated at the end of 1959-60. The damage had already been done before the arrival of Taylor and he seemed helpless to turn things round. Taylor had a clear-out before the following season but things did not get any better. With Leeds stumbling towards the depths of the second, Harry Reynolds the new chairman met Taylor and told him he was going to suggest to the board, it was time for him to go. Taylor resigned on 13 March 1961.
