Stephen Rochford has resigned from his position as Mayo senior football manager.
Rochford replaced joint managers Pat Holmes and Noel Connelly as Mayo boss in December 2015, and led the Yew County to back-to-back All-Ireland finals in 2016 and 2017.
However, Mayo were beaten by Galway in the Connacht quarter-finals in June, and then went down 0-21 to 0-19 to Kildare in the third round of the qualifiers.
The 39-year-old was reportedly unhappy with the Mayo county board's reaction to his decision to appoint former Mayo captain Peter Ford and his joint-manager at Breaffy Shane Conway as selectors.
"After a meeting of the Mayo GAA Board's Executive Committee last night, held to discuss the management team I had assembled to manage Mayo senior men's team in 2019, the board issued a statement saying they wished to meet the management team and me about our structure and plans," he said in a statement.
"It was apparent from what transpired at that meeting that the desired level of support for me as manager was not forthcoming from the Executive Committee.
"This disappoints me greatly. Accordingly, I see no value in meeting with the officers of the board and I am resigning my position as Mayo manager. I thank all those who supported me during the last three years, two of which saw Mayo coming so close to winning the All-Ireland title."
