Dublin Legend Distances Himself From The Offaly Job

Dublin Legend Distances Himself From The Offaly Job
By Gavin Cooney

Offaly are in the curious position of seeking an interim manager for the qualifiers, having ended Stephen Wallace's reign this week. A Leinster championship defeat to Wicklow led to media reports of player unrest in the camp, although these have been denied by Wallace and some of the players since the county board made their decision.

Nonetheless, Offaly have three weeks to appoint a manager prior to the first round of the qualifiers.

Dublin legend Vinnie Murphy had been touted as a potential candidate as co-manager with Niall Hobbert. The Irish Times reported yesterday that the pair had expressed interest in the job before Stephen Wallace was appointed, and added that they were contacted yesterday to tease out any potential interest they had in replacing Wallace.

Murphy, however, has distanced himself from the job. He and Hobbert are currently in charge of St Peregrines in Dublin, and Murphy confirmed today on Twitter that they remain his first priority should any approach be made.  He also recommended Offaly appoint a local manager.
