He began his career as a scout for the Boston Bruins, and in 1971 was hired by Charlie Finley as the California Golden Seals' new General Manager, replacing interim Fred Glover. He named himself coach after he dismissed Vic Stasiuk in the 1972 offseason. He was fired 12 games into the 1972–73 NHL season in light of irregularities surrounding Dick Redmond's contract. Finley rectified the situation by having Redmond traded to the Chicago Black Hawks and firing Young. Fred Glover was named Young's replacement.
Young was hired as General Manager of the Golden Seals again in February 1974 after Glover resigned. Young's term was again short-lived: he resigned prior to the beginning of the following season. He joined the St. Louis Blues as their head coach later that year, lasting there for parts of two seasons.
He later coached the Peterborough Petes for a single season.
