Mickey Hart’s 18-year tenure as manager of Tyrone football team has ended, with three-time All-Ireland winner confirmed he has resigned as director of longest-serving Gaelic football.
RTÉ Sport realizes that the hugely successful Hart made the decision to step down after the Tyrone Board of Directors did not approve his one-year extension request.
Four administrative positions are slated to become vacant and to be filled later in the coming weeks. These include the senior, under-20 and secondary football positions, along with the senior pitcher position, which were all renewed for a period of three years in late 2017 and expiring at the end of the season.. .
Errigal Ciaran’s man would have had to reapply and be interviewed for the position, presumably in competition with other candidates and had now chosen not to..

With talented strikers such as Matt Donnelly, Kathle McShane, Connor McKenna, Darag Canavan, Darren McCurry and Mark Bradley all available for selection in 2021, all eyes will be trained on the next county administrator to see if there is a different approach. It can help the team regain glory days.
It is understood that Logan coach of this team, legendary Peter Canavan, is not in the frame to look for any position in the coming years..
The change of guard would be a seismic moment for the county after the most successful manager in their history stepped aside.
For most of the past 10 years, Hart didn’t always have the star quality to attack, and instead developed a team skilled at counterattacking with runners able to score goals across the field..
Relocation to Matt Donnelly and Kathle McShane has given the team an extra chance over the past two seasons, but Hart has been devoid of McShane for this year’s tournament due to injury.
