Stephen Rochford will return for a fourth season in charge of the Mayo footballers.

The Mayo News reports that Rochford has informed county board chairman Mike Connelly of his intention to take charge next season.

The 39-year-old was first appointed in late 2015, taking over from the joint management team of Pat Holmes and Noel Connelly.

He has since led Mayo to two All-Ireland finals, both of which were lost narrowly to Dublin.


Last Autumn he was given an extension to his original term. His deal now runs until the end of the 2020 season.

2019 will also see a new-look backroom team for the Mayo footballers. Donie Buckley, Peter Burke and Tony McEntee have all stepped away from their roles.

On Monday, the Irish Sun reported that if Rochford had decided to end his term early, the county board was keen to bring in Jim McGuinness as his successor.
