Evans to take Tipperary reins
KERRY native John Evans will be confirmed tonight as Tipperary's new senior football team manager.
Evans, a former Kerry U21 team boss, famously guided his home club Laune Rangers to All-Ireland club glory back in 1996.
Evans landed three county titles with the Killorglin side in 1993, 1995 and 1996.
He has been handed a two-year term by Tipperary officials, with a review due to take place after the 2008 season.
For the past two seasons, Evans has been in charge of Tralee outfit Kerins O'Rahillys, who are top of Division 1 of the Kerry senior football league.
