Mattie McGleenan has stepped down as manager of the Cavan senior football team.
The Breffni County exited from the championship at the hands of Tyrone in Round 3 of the All-Ireland SFC qualifiers, and now look to build ahead of 2019.
The Tyrone native was in charge of the side for two years, and he leaves them in a good place with a spot in Division 1 secured ahead of next season.
A Cavan GAA statement thanked him for his efforts.
"Mattie would like to thank the county board under Chairman Gerry Brady and the officers for the opportunity to manage Cavan and for the continued support over the past two years. He wishes Cavan all the best in the future.
"Cavan GAA would like to put on record their appreciation and gratitude for the huge commitment and effort Mattie and his management have given to Cavan football. Mattie has an infectious positivity and was always a pleasure to work with. We wish Mattie and his family every success in the future."
The hunt now begins to find his successor, as Cavan look for a breakthrough in 2019.
