Eamon Fitzmaurice stepped away from the job in August and the county have been on the lookout for a successor since.
Fitzmaurice said at the time of his departure:
“With a new man in charge, it will hopefully afford him a bit of time and space, a bit of patience within our own county to allow them to develop to their full potential.
“I genuinely think they will benefit from a change of voice. A new scene and a new energy.”
