Kieran McGeeney is to combine his role as Armagh football selector with a place on the Tipperary hurling backroom team.

McGeeney has accepted an offer from Tipperary senior hurling manager Eamon O'Shea to join his backroom team for the 2014 campaign.

Former Kildare boss McGeeney joined Armagh football manager Paul Grimley’s set up last month following his departure from the Lilywhites helm in September.

McGeeney, who captained the Armagh footballers to All-Ireland glory in 2002, will spend the majority of his time with the Orchard County but it is understood that O'Shea will ask McGeeney to work on the mental side Tipperary's team preparation.

O’Shea has been busy building his support team and he recently brought in former Olympic sprinter Gary Ryan as physical trainer.
