Nicholas John Cusack (born 24 December 1965 in Maltby, South Yorkshire) is an English former footballer and, briefly, player-manager. He was for a time chairman of the Professional Footballers' Association (PFA).

Football career[edit]

In October 1997 Cusack joined Swansea City from Fulham for a fee of £50,000.[citation needed]

After a period as caretaker manager, he was appointed player-coach in April 2002,[1] but after just 17 games in charge he was replaced by Brian Flynn; he turned down an offer to remain on the coaching staff, and left in September 2002 with the club at the bottom of the Football League.[2]

Cusack was Swansea's PFA representative, and was elected chairman of the Association, succeeding Barry Horne, in November 2001.[3] He was active in the PFA's opposition to a reduction of professional clubs in the league pyramid.[4]
