For the second time in just under three years, Peter Taylor has turned down the chance to become a coach at Newcastle United.
Peter Taylor – turns down Newcastle
This time it was the chance to become Alan Pardew’s Assistant Manager at Newcastle.
Pardew has been working with a coaching staff of three since succeeding Chris Hughton at St James’ Park last month.
And there was news that broke yesterday, that he wanted to bring the experienced Taylor to Tyneside, to fill the role of Assistant Manager.
However, the former England Under-21 boss has decided to remain at Bradford.
The Bradford Joint Chairman Mark Lawn told the Yorkshire Post:
“Newcastle approached us between Christmas and New Year and we subsequently agreed compensation for the remainder of Peter’s contract.”
“But since then Peter has indicated he wants to stay and we hope that is the end of it.”
Taylor also rejected the Newcastle Youth Academy Director job back in May, 2008, when it was offered to him by the then Director of Football, Dennis Wise.
