The Appointment Of The New Mayo Manager Looks Closer To A Formality Now

The Appointment Of The New Mayo Manager Looks Closer To A Formality Now
By Conor Neville Updated

Following the player power induced resignation of Pat Holmes and Noel Connelly, James Horan briefly thought about giving the Mayo job another go.

He was installed as the second favourite by the bookies, behind the now runaway favourite Stephen Rochford.

However, Horan confirmed to the Daily Star today that he will not be seeking the Mayo job this time around.

I was very privileged to hold the position for four years and work with a brilliant bunch of players. I thoroughly enjoyed that honour and that position.

But I'm working with different teams in different codes, enjoying learning more about coaching and have a bit of catching up to do in everyday life too. I did media work this year and enjoyed that. I'm enjoying learning stuff about our games, and about different games.

After the end of John O'Mahony's curiously abject second spell as manager, Horan took the reins and transformed Mayo into perennial All-Ireland contenders over four tumultuous years.

The news makes it ever more likely that Corofin manager Stephen Rochford will be appointed manager.
