Kevin McStay has been ratified for a two-year term as Roscommon football manager after a turbulent couple of months for the county.

McStay was the only candidate left standing when he met the interview committee this week. He has the option to extend his term to a third year.

McStay and joint-manager Fergie O'Donnell parted company in September after a disappointing end to their championship season.

Meanwhile, Kerry are searching for a new senior football selector after Diarmuid Murphy's decision to step away was confirmed.

Murphy, who won four All-Ireland medals as a goalkeeper before accepting Jack O'Connor's invitation to join his backroom team in 2011, had been with manager Eamonn Fitzmaurice since he took over in late 2012.

Two other greats of the recent past, Maurice Fitzgerald and Seamus Moynihan, may well be in the frame to join the management.
