Jack O'Connor has been put forward as the next Kildare senior football manager.

A three-year term for the Kerry U20 manager has been proposed by the Management Committee.

O'Connor will be ratified at next month's meeting of the Kildare County Board.

The 58-year old will replace Cian O'Neill, who stepped down earlier in the summer after four-years in charge of the Lilywhites.

O'Connor led the Kerry senior football side to three All Ireland titles during two spells in charge, and he's overseen the Kingdom's Under-20s for the past three years.

He'll be familiar with the lay of the land in Kildare, having helped coach with Moorefield where his sons Éanna and Cian both play.

A statement from the Kildare County Board reads:

The Management Committee of Kildare GAA are pleased to nominate Jack O’Connor for the position of Kildare Senior Football Manager for a three year term. The proposal will go before the September County Board meeting for ratification.
