Report: James Horan Nominated For Mayo Manager Job

James Horan has reportedly been nominated to succeed Stephen Rochford as manager of the Mayo senior footballers.

According to The Mayo News, Horan has been nominated for the job by at least one club. The deadline for nominations is Wednesday afternoon.

Horan took over from John O'Mahony as Mayo manager in September 2010, resigning four years later after an All-Ireland semi-final replay defeat to Kerry.

In between he took Mayo to two All-Ireland finals, losing in 2012 to Donegal and 2013 to Dublin.


Following the All-Ireland final earlier this month, Horan poured cold water on that possibility that he would take over from Rochford. So it's certainly interesting to see that he has now been nominated.

"At the moment, it's not something that's on my mind," he told Sky Sports.

"I'm a Mayo man that's very passionate about Mayo football and would love to work with the players at some point but at the moment, where I am, it's not something that's high on my agenda."
