Conor Counihan is expected to continue as Cork football manager for 2013 but is said to be considering changing his management team.

Counihan, who has been in charge since February 2008, had intimated that he would step down in the aftermath of the All-Ireland semi-final defeat to Donegal on 26 August.

However, he has had a change of heart and will seek another year at the helm - a situation that will be discussed by the county board when they meet next Tuesday.

According to a report in the Evening Echo, current U-21 boss John Cleary is set to join the coaching set-up for next year, while the future of current senior selectors Jim Nolan, Terry O’Neill, Ger O’Sullivan and Peader Healy is still unclear.

The new management team will also have to address the possibility of Aidan Walsh throwing his lot in with the county's hurling side under Jimmy Barry-Murphy.

Counihan has already guided the Rebels to an All-Ireland title in 2010 and three successive league titles.
