Management Career

Club(s) McMahon took over the reigns at Swindon Town FC in November 1994, becoming the club's player-manager. He was sent-off on his debut and relegated in his first season, but undeterred, McMahon would go on to play 42 league matches before hanging-up his boots. But after a promotion in his second season, the results and table positions became mediocre, and he left by mutual consent in September 1998. McMahon then took up the management at Blackpool FC on 7 January 2000, where he remained until the final game of the 2003-04 season. In 2005, he had a spell in charge of A-League side Perth Glory FC.
