The Mayo County Board have released a statement confirming that James Horan has committed to the 2014 season with the Connacht champions but James Nallen has stood down as selector.
James Nallen, who has been involved with every Mayo panel since 1995, has been forced to abandon his position as Horan's selector due to family and work commitments.
"It'll be a real shame not to have James with us next year, he's been an inspirational figure to the players and, having played 132 competitive games for Mayo, his experience was something we could always turn to. Replacing a real legend in Mayo football won't be easy. I've met a few people but it's too early to announce anything," Horan said.
A county board statement read: "The Mayo County Board at this stage would like to sincerely thank James Nallen for his commitment over the last 2 years in the management setup, and we look forward to seeing him in the future."
After a very productive Horan and Mayo County Board Officers, Horan confirmed he would be staying and described speculation earlier this month that he may be standing down as "pure nonsense".
After guiding the county to three Connacht titles and two All-Ireland finals during his three-year term, the Ballintubber native will enter his fourth season at the helm intent on ending Mayo's 63-year wait for Sam Maguire.
"Nothing has changed, the ambition of this squad is to win an All-Ireland and that is an ambition that drives us all," he said.
