The ratification season is in full swing and Cavan have done some ratifying tonight. After four and a half years of Terry Hyland, they've gone outside the county for some inspiration.
Mattie McGleenan was the choice of the selection committee beating other candidates Jack Sheedy and the high proflie Seamus McEnaney.
McGleenan, a Tyrone footballer back in the 1990s, managed Scotstown to three Monaghan senior championships in four years. The club reached the Ulster club final last year, losing to Crossmaglen.
Cavan progressed mightily under Terry Hyland in four and a half seasons.
For context, the year before he assumed the manager's job on his own, Cavan were smashed by 11 points by Longford in the qualifiers in Breffni Park.
Two years later, they reached the All-Ireland quarter-final. That was to be as good as it got but Cavan remained competitive. This year, they sailed by Armagh and only lost to Tyrone after a replay.
Hyland quit after their narrow loss to Derry in Round 3 of the qualifiers. They failed in their ambition to win an Ulster title.
In the quest for a provincial title, they've gone for a man who was responsible for Cavan heartache in a previous Ulster final.
McGleenan fisted a goal in the 1995 Ulster final, enabling Tyrone to fire past Cavan and into an All-Ireland semi-final.
