The Irish News reports that Grimley is set to step down when the Orchard County bow out of the 2014 campaign with his 42 year-old assistant ready to step into the role.

The paper says that 56-year-old Grimley intends to take a break from the game having been involved in management for 13 years.

McGeeney, 42, was captain of the Armagh team which won the All-Ireland Championship in 2002 and managed the Kildare senior footballers before linking up with his native county.

Armagh pulled off a surprise three-point win over Tyrone last weekend and now face Roscommon in round 3B of the All-Ireland qualifiers.
