Seamus McEnaney is set to continue as Monaghan football manager for another three years.
His reappointment is due to be ratified at next week's county board meeting. McEnaney, who has already served six years as Farney boss, revealed that he only allowed his name to go forward on the condition that he is granted a three-year extension.
"I can't write off 2010 simply because we didn't perform for 35 minutes against Tyrone in the Ulster final," he said.
"In my opinion, Monaghan played their best football by a country mile in 2010 - a good football man would notice that. There is no doubt that we played our best football. We improved more in 2010 than we did in any other year."
