Michael Ryan will be staying on as Tipperary hurling manager after being given a fresh three-year term.
Ryan led the Premier County to an All-Ireland title in 2016, his first season in charge, while they were defeated by eventual champions Galway in the semi-finals of this year's competition.
Ryan won an All-Ireland hurling medal as a player in 1991 and has previously served as a selector under both Liam Sheedy and Eamon O'Shea.
His backroom team will also remain in place with Declan Fanning, John Madden and Conor Stakelum all returning as selectors.
Tipperary have announced a raft of other appointments with football manager Liam Kearns handed a new two-year term in charge.
A year after surprisingly reaching the All-Ireland semi-finals under Kearns, Tipp were knocked out by Armagh in Round 3 of the 2017 qualifiers.
At underage level, 2016 All-Ireland minor hurling winning manager Liam Cahill will take charge of U21 hurling team for the next three years.
2001 All-Ireland senior winning captain Tommy Dunne has also been handed a three-year term in charge of the minor hurling team.
David Power and Matt O'Doherty will manage the under-20 and minor footballers respectively next year, both on a two-year basis.
