Jim Fleeting

Jim Fleeting was Kilmarnock boss from 1988 to 1992 during a topsy-turvy time for the Rugby Park club.

From his Wikipedia: Fleeting began his professional career with Norwich City, making only one appearance before joining Ayr United, where he stayed for six years. He went on to play for Clyde and Greenock Morton (where he was assistant manager to Willie McLean), before joining Clyde again.

He was appointed manager of Stirling Albion in the summer of 1988, before leaving the club and joining Kilmarnock as manager from 1988 to 1992.

Fleeting has since worked as the director of football development for the Scottish Football Association, training coaches at the National Sports Centre in Largs. José Mourinho and André Villas-Boas both obtained UEFA qualifications at Largs. 

Fleeting is the father of Kilwinning Rangers player Barry "The Windmill" Fleeting and Scottish women's international player Julie Fleeting.
