Jesse Marsch has broken his social media silence nearly two months after being fired from Leeds, but the American manager has yet to update his job title on LinkedIn.
Marsch was ousted on February 6 less than a year after taking over for Marcelo Bielsa amid the team’s poor form this season, with Leeds above the relegation zone only on goal difference at the time of his sacking.
The former RB Leipzig and New York Red Bulls manager shared his thoughts on his time at Leeds Friday in his first tweets since he was fired.
‘I’ve taken some time out for myself over the last couple of months and it’s been a good chance to reflect on aspects of life while in Leeds,’ he wrote.
‘I’m very proud of our achievements like staying up in 21/22 and when I look back on my time at Leeds, I’ll think of that with great pride.’

Marsch is still listed as Leeds’ head coach on his LinkedIn profile, which he posted to Friday
‘I’m also grateful to have worked with a great group of players and staff and to have met some fantastic people in Yorkshire.
‘I’m taking some time to consider the right next step but until then, I’ll be enjoying time with family & friends.’
While Marsch hasn’t coached Leeds since February 5, however, he still lists himself as the club’s head coach in his LinkedIn profile.
Marsch shared his same comments from Twitter onto the job networking website.
His most recent post on the platform prior to Friday was about the book ‘The Nine Types of Leader’ by James Ashton.
‘I found this read particularly interesting because as a player I was so cutthroat and it was always about winning,’ he wrote in a post before his Leeds departure.
‘As a coach, I’m focused on results but I’m more about culture, nurture, development and relationships and being honest, this wasn’t something I anticipated when I became a coach.
‘I still have a hard time processing a loss, it’s always a big thing to overcome but after a little time I’m able to get back to the core of what I believe and who I am and that is someone who connects with people.’
Since Marsch’s firing, he was spotted attending Princeton’s NCAA Tournament upset of Arizona earlier this month, taking in his alma mater’s win with friends.
The American did well to keep Leeds up last season after taking over on February 28.
Javi Gracia has seen an uptick in results for Leeds and they’re 14th with 11 games left
Leeds were just two points above the relegation zone and owners of the second-worst goal difference in the league as they leaked seven goals to Man City and six to Liverpool on another occasion.
Marsch eventually guided the club to safety with a 2-1 over Brentford on the final day of the decision.
Meanwhile, Leeds have stabilized a bit under new manager Javi Gracia.
The club is now 14th – though just two points above 18th – after their 4-2 win over Wolves on March 18.
