CORK MANAGER BRIAN Cuthbert has confirmed to the county’s official GAA website that they will be on the look out for a new senior football coach for the 2015 season.

Former county senior defender Ronan McCarthy has departed his role due to ‘work and other commitments’. McCarthy was involved for the 2013 campaign under Conor Counihan and continued in the role in 2014 when Cuthbert was installed in charge.

McCarthy won two Munster senior football titles and a National League medal during his playing career with Cork. The closest he came to All-Ireland glory was when Cork lost out to Meath in the 1999 All-Ireland final.

Prior to taking on the Cork coaching job, he had been involved with his club Douglas and steered them to the 2008 Cork senior football decider where they lost out to Nemo Rangers.

In McCarthy’s two years involved with the Cork back room team, they reached both Munster finals but fell short against Kerry while they exited the championship at the All-Ireland quarter-final stage against Dublin and Mayo respectively.
