Jack O’Connor will return to manage the Kerry senior football panel for the league and Championship to come.
In his last spell in charge of the Kingdom, he managed to win the Sam Maguire with Kerry in 2009.
The Kerins O’Rahilly’s club man brings a wealth of experience to the role after having a spell with the Kerry Minors and Kildare up in Leinster.
As reported by OTBSports, he’s set to return to the job in what will be his third stint in charge…

The 60-year-old is a hugely popular figure within Kerry and this announcement will be welcomed greatly by people in the region.
Jack O’Connor replaces Peter Keane, who didn’t manage to win that all-important All-Ireland and that is what you are ultimately judged on in Kerry.
It’s perfect timing for O’Connor as there’s a good crop of young footballers coming through in the Kingdom and it looks like Dublin are starting to fall off.
Could it be time for Kerry to start winning All-Ireland’s again? There are interesting times ahead down south…
