There has been speculation about disquiet in the ranks of the Mayo players and an exasperated tweet from Aidan O'Shea following their defeat to Dublin got tongues wagging.

He wrote: "Logic & @MayoGAA rarely go together."

Three days later, the Mayo squad voted on whether they had confidence in the management and team captain Keith Higgins and vice-captain Cillian O'Connor have informed Holmes and Connelly of the result.

The chances of the current management, who have been in place for a year, continuing into 2016 now looks remote.

Mayo won a historic fifth Connacht title in a row this year before losing out to eventual All-Ireland champions Dublin after a replay in their All-Ireland semi-final.
