Former Cork star Conor Counihan has emerged as a possible choice to take over from Larry Tompkins despite Billy Morgan's interest in the position.

Counihan was on the team alongside Tompkins that won All-Ireland titles in 1989 and 1990 and served as a selector under Tompkins en route to the 1999 All-Ireland final.
