Kerry senior football manager Eamonn Fitzmaurice has reportedly received the backing of players to remain in the role.
The Kingdom boss summoned his panel to a meeting at the Brehon Hotel in Killarney last Sunday.
A comprehensive review of the championship has yet to begin, but Fitzmaurice was said to be keen to seek assurances that the players were happy to continue with the current management team.
After receiving their support he looks set to confirm his intention to stay in the position for a sixth year.
The Kingdom exited the Championship at the hands of Mayo after losing a replay by 2-16 to 0-17 at the semi-final stage of the All Ireland SFC.
His backroom team of Mikey Sheehy, Maurice Fitzgerald and Liam Hassett look set to commit to the cause for 2018 too.
An official announcement from the Kerry county board confirming Fitzmaurice’s intention to remain is expected before the end of the week.
