Two-time All-Ireland winner and Offaly legend Brian Whelahan has been put forward by a four-man selection committee to be given a two-year term as Offaly hurling boss.

The Birr clubman, who won four All-Stars during an illustrious career, looks set to replace Ollie Baker as manager after the Clare man stepped down after this year's championship.

The senior hurling manager selection committee comprising of Pauraic Boland, Tommy Byrne, Michael Coughlan and Paddy Scales are recommending Whelahan's appointment for a two year period.

Whelahan was the only modern player named in the GAA's Team of the Millenium and won two All-Ireland minor titles, four All-Ireland club titles, 12 Offaly senior hurling titles and was twice Texaco Hurler of the Year.
