Mickey Harte steps down as Tyrone manager

MICKEY Harte has decided he will not put his name forward in the race to fill the vacant Tyrone management position, ending his 18-year career as senior intercounty manager.

Harte’s request for a one-year extension was rejected by the Tyrone Management Committee on Tuesday evening, and he informed his players this evening that he will be standing down.

The Errigal Ciaran man led Tyrone to three All-Ireland titles at senior level, for the first time in the county’s history in 2003, then in 2005 and 2008.

The favourites to succeed him at this stage are Feargal Logan and Collie Holmes.
