Sean Cavanagh Says Time Might Be Up For Mickey Harte

Sean Cavanagh Says Time Might Be Up For Mickey Harte

Sean Cavanagh says it may be time for Mickey Harte's time as Tyrone manager to come to an end.

Tyrone exited the championship to Kerry on Sunday in what was Harte's 17th season in charge of the county.

"He's been an amazing servant to the county," Cavanagh said on The Sunday Game, "the three All-Ireland titles but the reality is the likes of Art McRory and Eugene McKenna were there for a long time before him and did amazing work as well."

Cavanagh, who was a key player for Harte in all three of those All-Ireland victories, suggested some possible names to be the next Tyrone boss. Harte's last All-Ireland win with Tyrone was in 2008.

There does come a time when that baton does have to be passed on. He's given his life to Tyrone football.

There are other guys there. I know the likes of Fergal Logan, Brian Dooher, Peter Canavan are big names in Tyrone football as well. The core of that team won an under-21 title with those guys.

Maybe it's time for someone like that. I was sitting in the canteen earlier and I saw Malachy [O'Rourke] filling in his CV - I know he lives quite close to Garvaghey.

The reality is, no one can fault Mickey Harte but time moves on.
