Evans became the first coach in the country to be made a county Director of Football when the appointment was announced on New Year's Day.

There were concerns expressed in some quarters that this paid job was a breach of the amateur code, but a GAA spokesman confirmed that the position conforms to the Association's Official Guide.

Headquarters sees it as a Games Promotion Officer's role under a different label, and the rules allow for salaries to be paid to employees of the Association.

Evans has been given a three-year contract by Tipperary to develop the Premier County's football structures.
