Feargal Logan and Brian Dooher have been appointed as Tyrone's new management team.

The pair were ratified at a meeting of the county executive on Wednesday night to succeed Mickey Harte, who left the post earlier this month after 18 years in charge.

Logan, a 50-year-old solicitor will work alongside Brian Dooher and Collie Holmes, both members of the Tyrone teams which won three All-Ireland titles between 2003 and 2008.

Joe McMahon, another All-Ireland winner, is another recruit to the backroom team, with former Strength and Conditioning coach Peter Donnelly set to return following a season with Monaghan.

Logan managed Tyrone’s 2015 All-Ireland U21 winning side, when Dooher was a member of his backroom team.

He will renew his link with several members of that team who have since established themselves as senior players, including Cathal McShane, Padraig Hampsey, Rory Brennan, Frank Burns, Kieran McGeary, Michael Cassidy, Mark Bradley and Conor Meyler.

The new Red Hand boss is understood to have been one of just two candidates for the position, along with Mickey Donnelly, who stood down as Derry U20 manager earlier this week after three years in charge.

Stewartstown Harps clubman Logan takes on the role with a significant weight of expectation resting on his shoulders.

The new supremo will be expected to switch to a more attack-minded approach, given the potential offered by former AFL star Conor McKenna and Darragh Canavan, both of whom made their championship debuts in last month’s Ulster Championship defeat to Donegal.

The imminent return of All-Star full forward Cathal McShane from injury adds to the potency of what could be a hugely effective offensive unit.

Wednesday night's announcement comes as no surprise. Logan had made it clear in the aftermath of Harte’s departure that he was interested in taking up the post.

Harte departed the scene under a cloud, having had a request for a one-year extension to his expired term turned down by the county executive.

He decided not to pursue a three-year term, which was the only option offered by the executive. However, he has since committed to three years as Louth manager in a surprise appointment confirmed earlier this week.

As a player with Tyrone, he won two Ulster titles, and played at midfield on the team which lost the 1995 All-Ireland final.

Since the end of his playing days, he has been involved in coaching and management at his club, Stewartstown Harps, up to an including this year.
