MK Dons have unveiled Paul Tisdale as their new manager.

The 45-year-old recently left Exeter City after 12 years in charge.

He was presented to the media by chairman Pete Winkelman after signing a long-term rolling contract at Stadium MK.

Matt Oakley and Mel Gwinnett have also joined as Assistant Manager and First-Team Coach respectively.

The trio will be hoping to lead the Dons back to League One at the first attempt after they were relegated last season.

“When the owner contacted me we discussed the opportunity for a fresh approach, both on and off the pitch," Tisdale said.

“We have a shared vision for the club and want to build a unique environment and culture - one which will best enable the players to perform and become part of a winning football team.

“I am excited by the club’s ambition and relish the challenge of guiding MK Dons to fulfil its undoubted potential.”

Meanwhile, the Dons have confirmed that former caretaker boss Keith Millen has left the club.

MK Dons have parted company with manager Dan Micciche by mutual consent, the Sky Bet League One strugglers have announced.

Former academy coach and England Under-16 manager Micciche, 38, was only appointed in January, during which time the club have slipped to six points from safety.<

Keith Millen, who was Micciche's assistant, will take charge of the Dons for the remaining three games of the season.

A club statement read: "The mutual decision, made with a heavy heart, comes after discussions between the chairman and Micciche."

This is a club that means a lot to me and my family and I put every ounce of effort into the job. Unfortunately, the fine margins have gone against us and it hasn't worked out in the way we would have wanted.

I am extremely grateful to the board, staff, players and fans for their tremendous support during my time here. It has been an honour to manage this football club and I would love nothing more than to see it get back to where it belongs.
