Rotherham United next manager after Matt Taylor
Matt Taylor – Rotherham United
After the surprise departure of Paul Warne to Derby County who had been in charge of the Millers for almost six years before being appointed as Liam Rosenior’s replacement at the popular Rams – Derby County.
For the first time since November 2016, Rotherham United were in the hunt for a new manager - and there were some familiar names being linked with the vacant post at the AESSEAL New York Stadium.
After several days of intensive searching and talks Rotherham United have named Exeter City boss Matt Taylor as their new manager. The 40-year-old, who led Exeter to promotion from League Two last season, has signed a deal until 2026. Back when he was a player, he also was a captain of Exeter City and helped the team to get promotion from non-league to League One. Taylor has rich playing career as he also spent some time in Charlton, Cheltenham, Bradford City, Halifax Town…
With him to Rotherham United will come and Wayne Carlisle who was Taylor’s assistant in Exeter City.
"Taylor has been identified as the young, ambitious and intelligent manager that the Millers' board were looking for and not only does he boast those credentials, he also has form for following a long-term occupant of a managerial post," was Rotherham’s statement.
Taylor was very pleased with this opportunity and said: “In terms of where this club can go, we have seen smaller clubs than Rotherham in the Premier League. I am not saying we are going to get promoted this season or next season, but you have to be ambitious. You have to be able to dream, in football and in life and there is no reason why we can't achieve something special. You never know in football. We found that at Exeter. We have to be ambitious, we have to look forward and look up. In football, unless you are top you have to look up, no matter what the situation is. If you are bottom of the league or you are second you have to keep looking up. "We want to take this league on in relation to how the team has started already. We are not going to take a backward step in any way. If we lose, we lose on our terms”.
Taylor success with Exeter U23 team back in 2013/14 season and with Exeter’s first team, the way he developed the team from non league to League One is something that is worth appreciation and he earned and deserved this chance to lead a team in the EHF Championship.
