Hmmmmmm....
Has the Hatch spoken?
Was supposed to be a done deal Tuesday or Wednesday and then not happening as he had no Rossies in his proposed back room.
1 BIG CUP and 1 Cupeen so far....

Interesting. Are we looking for a bit of outside help and expertise as we try to evolve some more away from the blanket approach?

No.

He might have a good backroom team if rumours are to be believed, at least.

A strange choice for the Rossies! As a Sligo man I would be pleasantly surprised as I thought they had more buying power. O'Rourke was with Kildare, Down, Armagh, Louth and Queen's winning a grand total of nothing. A modern day GAA journeyman.

Who's in his backroom team?

As A Rossie syf doesn't speak for us all.

Backroom tea  will be deciding factor.  It let the last big name front man down....

O'Rourke probably better than anyone else who was interested but it sums up how low the external opinion of Ross football despite being in D1 and super 8s that this is as good as we get,

Nigel Dineen was the outstanding local candidates has question marks also

Mike McGurn the S&C coach. A good few Roscommon  players need good conditioning.

He won the Sigerson cup with Queens and was on the Kildare management that reached the All Ireland semi final and very close to winning it. If the rossies manage that they will be more than happy I'd say.

Very good appointment there if the players buy into it.

McGurn won't come cheap. Aidan O'Rourke has had less outright management positions than the last Roscommon Manager McStay so he'll certainly need a good backroom team.

Plenty in the county less than happy with the appointment. Itís no surprise to see you Stanning for an Armagh man, though.

The same tÓts in the county who complained about what McStayís cost was better keep their knives sharpened because OíRourke and his buddies wonít be coming in cheapily. I can think of plenty of better ways to spend that amount of money.

If he gets the job I wish him the best but he has a hard task ahead of him given his track record in Louth and the players that wonít be available next year.
