Coaching staff announced.

Leeds United are pleased to confirm Jesse Marsch’s backroom team that will be in place until the end of the season.

Franz Schiemer joins the Whites having previously worked with Marsch as his Assistant Head Coach at Red Bull Salzburg. As a player, the 35-year-old made over 150 appearances for Salzburg winning 25 caps for the Austrian national team.

Former Swansea City coach Cameron Toshack also joins the new-look set up having left his role as Head Coach at Cypriot First Division side Pafos FC in October 2020. Toshack brings a wealth of experience to the role having worked at both Academy and first team levels since 2011.

Finally, Jesse will be supported by our current Under-23s Head Coach Mark Jackson who will move up to first team duties. Jackson is a popular figure at Elland Road and has overseen the development of various players who are now involved with the first team squad.

Former Middlesbrough and Cardiff City player Andrew Taylor will step in as interim Under-23 Head Coach. Taylor joined Leeds United from Sunderland in 2021 after spending several years as part of the League One club's first team staff.
