Brian Cuthbert has resigned as manager of the Cork footballers.
The news was reported this morning in the Irish Examiner.
And Cuthbert has now confirmed it in a statement this morning.
“I have decided not to seek reappointment to the position of Cork senior football manager and am stepping down with immediate effect”, he said.
“From being within a few seconds of being crowned Munster Champions to making our All Ireland Championship exit at the hands of Kildare at the week-end has been difficult for me, the players and backroom staff.
“The short period involved demonstrates the tight margins that exist between success and failure at inter county level.
County Chairman Gerard Lane thanked Cuthbert, adding "Brian still has a lot to offer to the GAA and I wish him every success in his future endeavours.”
Cuthbert had been in charge since 2013, when he replaced Conor Counihan in the role.
They reached the Allianz League Final earlier this year, but lost heavily to Dublin.
They then pushed All-Ireland champions Kerry close in the Munster final, forcing a replay.
But Kerry won the replay, and Cork then fell to an 8-point defeat to Kildare in the final round of the Qualifiers last weekend.
