O'Connor retains Kerry top job

Jack O'Connor is set to be ratified for a third term as Kerry football manager.

And former goalkeeper Diarmuid Murphy may be joining him as a new selector.

O'Connor's spell in charge ended after the All-Ireland SFC quarter-final defeat to Down earlier this month, but the county board has agreed a third term for the Dromid man.

It is understood O'Connor has had discussions with a number of potential new selectors, including former Limerick coach Donie Buckley.

But Murphy has emerged as a surprise candidate for the role. He ended his inter-county playing career last year.
