Earl Logan and Brian Doher are the new joint managers for the Tyrone football team.
Two weeks after the departure of All-Ireland champion Bose, they were recognized at the county executive meeting last night as successors to Mickey Harte.
The 50-year-old solicitor, Logan, who trained in Omag and Coliseland, will take on the role alongside doubles All-Ireland winner Captain Brian Doher.
Collie Holmes, a member of the county’s three Sam Maguire Cup winning teams, will also be part of the new management team. He is now Tyrone Minor Boss.
Another Red Hand All-Ireland winner, Joe McMahon, who is currently with Fermanagh, has been linked with a return to strength and conditioning coach Peter Donnelly following a misspelling with Monaghan.
Logan, a former Tyrone player, managed Tyrone’s 2015 All-Ireland U21 winning team, and Doher was a member of his backroom team. He will renew relationships with many of the members of that team who established themselves as senior players.
Cork, meanwhile, plans to raise more than $ 20 million in GAA revenue over the next five years, which could include the sale of naming rights to Per Chau to Chao as part of a commercial strategy.
The various partners in Leaseide are coming together under the ‘One Cork’ in a move designed to maximize the Cork GAA brand and mimic some of Dublin’s recent successes on and off the pitch.
As part of that strategy, many outside Cork will make the most of a flagship stadium that was seen as a financial mill.
“One Cork” confirmed in a press release that the group wants to activate a number of new opportunities to understand the true potential of Pirk U Chaoim.
Cork Chairperson Tracy Kennedy declared: “From now on, there is only one purpose – the success of the entire organization with the goal of benefiting all our players and all our clubs.”
