Solan revealed to the Irish Examiner that a former Mayo senior footballer is also on the verge of joining his ticket and that he has an “experienced coach” lined up to train the Dublin-based Mayo players. 

Any ideas as to they might be?

Maurice Sheridan is probably the former Mayo footballer. I've heard him mentioned by a few people.
Yeah Maurice Sheridan is what I've heard also. DB is in for the Commercial Director position whenever it actually gets opened

Billy Sheehan will be involved with Solan, is that the same lad who was involved with Cork a few years ago?

The only thing greater than Sheehan's ability to fall upwards seems to be his ambition.

He was with Cork for a year and was also part of the Offaly setup with Wallace for a few months.

Never seems to stay anywhere long-term.

Medical/pharma salesman selling to doctors surgeries, last time I heard anyway. Well regarded in the trade apparently.

Will ye have a manager in time for the NFL  or will ye wait till the Tanned One departs the Biffos in March?

Dunno, sure the tanned one might go back to ye. He likes swanky buses that man.

Succession "clause"  ::) . They don't actually sign legally bound contracts, you do know that, right?

Ha, ok fair enough. You do hear the talk of "contracts" quite often though when it comes to managers. As if there is actually such thing.

Horan's gig now, hopefully Solan comes in with him.

STATEMENT RE: MIKE SOLAN REMOVES NAME FROM MANAGERS JOB
 Sep 28,2018
Mayo GAA have been informed by Mike Solan that he is withdrawing his name for the role as Mayo Senior football team manager. We would like to thank Mike for putting his name forward for the role & look forward to seeing him involved with Mayo GAA in the future. The officers of Mayo GAA will now meet with James Horan to discuss his management team & plans for 2019.

Statement from Mike Solan:
"Today, I have informed the Mayo County Board that I am withdrawing my name from the nomination process for the Mayo Senior Football Team Manager. I would like to thank everyone who helped me in this process and I would like to wish the Mayo Senior team every success in 2019 and beyond."

From the Mayo GAA website.

Can't help but feel he should have given a reason, even if it was only a cosmetic/makey-up one, as not giving one will lead to lots of speculation/gossip/rumours.

Oh to be a fly on the wall for the meeting between Horan and the officers of the Mayo GAA - be some laugh if he came out and said his planned management team were going to be Peter Ford and Shane Conway.

Will there be a bit of a shotgun wedding feel if/when Horan gets ratified? It doesn't exactly inspire confidence that the drama will end here.

There was obviously some behind-the-scenes negotiations - we may yet see Solan on the mgmt ticket, a lot of people would be happy with that outcome.

The amount of money the bag handlers are going to have to be fronting for a Horan style set-up when the team itself is in need of a near-complete overhaul seems like a form of madness.

If the behind-the-scenes negotiations had been done and dusted and Solan was getting a place on the mgmt ticket, everything would surely have all been announced as a package deal all together.

Based on Solan's statement and the fact that the county board have said they going to have discussions with Horan, I wouldn't rate the chances of Solan being involved with the seniors very high.

Given the way things go for Mayo GAA, I'm half-expecting a meeting to take place and the county board to say that they couldn't come to agreement with Horan.
