Three-time coach Mickey Hart ends his 18-year reign as Tyrone’s manager, heralding the end of an era of Gaelic football in the county.
The GAA’s longest serving Inter-District Football Manager has informed his team members that he will step down.
It turns out that the county council rejected his request for a one-year extension.
Hart is the most successful Red Hand County manager of all time, having led Tyrone to win only three titles across Ireland in 2003, 2005 and 2008..
His last three-year term ended in defeat for Ulster SFC in the quarter-finals to Donegal earlier this month.
One possibility was that the Errigal Ciaran Club member would apply for a three-year term, which would have included an interview for the position, but chose not to..

The county council will now call for nominations from clubs for the position of first director, ahead of the annual conference next month.
