Kenny Jackett is the former manager of Millwall Football Club. Jackett joined the Championship side in 2007 and became the longest serving manager in the second tier up until his resignation on May 7th 2013.
After making over 300 appearances for Watford, Kenny Jackett was forced to retire in 1990 at the age of 28 after picking up a career-ending injury, but he stayed at Vicarage Road to take on coaching duties.
He was eventually handed the head coaching job in 1996 having succeeded Graham Taylor, who was named Director of Football. However, after a season at the helm of Watford, Jackett was demoted to assistant manager as Taylor regained the managerial duties. The pair managed to win back-to-back promotions and got Watford into the Premier League, but the Hornets were relegated the following season.
Taylor left Watford and Jackett was relinquished of his duties at the club in 2001 and joined QPR as an assistant, but three years later he was handed the Swansea City job and Jackett was an instant success gaining promotion from League Two with the Swans.
Losing in the League One play-off final scuppered their plan for back-to-back promotion and Jackett eventually left Swansea by mutual consent in 2007, before taking over as reserve team manager at Millwall.
He was eventually handed the first team position at the Den and in the 2008-2009 season won the League One play-off final to get the club into the Championship and that is where the club have stayed since.
