Waiting game: Tyrone manager Mickey Harte lifts the Sam Maguire Cup in 2003

Having plotted untold glory for Tyrone and, in the process, established himself as one of the greatest managers in GAA history, Mickey Harte is today pondering his future after the curtain was ignominiously drawn on his team's season less than a fortnight ago.

As a person who consistently challenges himself, Harte's penchant for raising the bar has seen him set standards which have become increasingly difficult to attain.

Glowing statistics such as three All-Ireland titles since 2003 and six Ulster championship crowns in the same period bear testimony to the absolute dedication, supreme commitment and unbridled enthusiasm that Harte brought to the manager's role.
