Fitzmaurice leaves post

Kerry selector Eamonn Fitzmaurice has quit his post in the wake of the shock All-Ireland SFC semi-final defeat to Down.

The former All-Ireland winning defender has been a member of Jack O'Connor's backroom staff for two years.

"It's been pretty full-on for two years and I thought it was a good idea to take a year out now at this stage," said Fitzmaurice.

"Also, from the players' point of view, it is no harm to keep things fresh by shaking up the management team."
