Former Dublin All-Ireland football winning manager Pat Gilroy had been chosen to manage the capital's senior hurlers, writes Stephen Barry.
Details of the full management team will be announced shortly, but former Galway boss Anthony Cunningham is rumoured to be included in Gilroy's team.
Gilroy's appointment on a three-year term ends a process which began with Ger Cunningham stepping down by mutual consent in July.
An announcement was delayed a further week due to "unforeseen circumstances" which prevented a name being put to a county board meeting last week.
Mattie Kenny was understood to be the other candidate for the position, having managed Cuala to become the first Dublin club to win the All-Ireland title earlier this year.
The Dubs exited the championship this summer after heavy losses to Galway and Tipperary sandwiched a win over Laois.
Cunningham's three years in charge were marked by the departures of many star players from the squad, including 2013 All-Stars Danny Sutcliffe and Peter Kelly.
It leaves Gilroy facing big decisions over who to attempt to tempt back to the panel for 2018.
