MICKEY Harte has stepped down as the manager of the Tyrone senior football team, it has been confirmed.
Tyrone’s Ulster SFC quarter-final defeat by Donegal two weeks ago in Ballybofey has proved to be Harte’s last act.
Harte tonight confirmed that his 18-year spell as Red Hands manager has ended – bringing to a close the most successful period in Tyrone’s history.
Harte was the longest serving Gaelic football manager with his tenure comprising three All-Ireland titles in 2003, 2005 and 2008.
Tyrone also won six Ulster Championships, the 2003 National Football League and seven Dr McKenna Cups during Harte’s reign.
Tyrone last appeared in the All-Ireland final in 2018, when they lost out to Dublin.
It is believed that former Under-21 All-Ireland winning manager Fergal Logan is the leading candidate to succeed Harte.Tags:
