Jason Wilcox resumed his career in football in 2012 when he was appointed manager of the Manchester City’s under 13’s academy team.

After a successful season where his team beat all before them he was promoted to under 18’s manager in 2013.

Wilcox had continued success with his young charges when they won the North Division under 18’s title in his first year in charge.

He also helped to oversee the Manchester City academy’s relocation from their old Platt Lane training ground to its current location in east Manchester.

When Pep Guardiola joined the club in 2017, Wilcox was promoted to head of academy coaching with former Everton player Lee Carsley replacing him as coach of the under 18’s.

In June 2017, Wilcox was appointed as the club’s interim academy director after Mark Allen left to join Rangers as their new director of football.

After five months working on an interim basis, Wilcox was appointed as Manchester City’s academy director on a full-time basis in October 2017.
