Michéal McDermott has stepped down as Clare football manager after three seasons in charge.
McDermott informed County Board officials yesterday that he does not want to be considered for a fourth year in charge.
McDermott came into the Clare job at the end of the 2009 season in the middle of a very successful spell managing at club level in the county.
He led Kilmurry-Ibrickane to the 2009 Munster club title, before they were defeated in the All-Ireland club final the following March. He continued that success at club level last season in Limerick, when he guided Monaleen to the county title.
