Former Kerry Junior All-Ireland-winning coach Stephen Wallace is set to become the new Offaly football manager. 

Wallace, who also won an All-Ireland intermediate club title with Ardfert, was recommended by a committee charged with finding a replacement for Pat Flanagan, who departed his role after a three-year stint following defeat to Monaghan in the qualifiers. 

It is expected that the appointment will be ratified at the next meeting of the county board. 

Meanwhile, the search for a manager for the senior hurling team in the county is ongoing.
