Mick O’Dwyer to take a year out of management

    Legendary GAA boss Mick O’Dwyer has said he may return to inter-county management in 2013 but is taking the next twelve months off.

    The Kerry man will not be in charge of a county side next season after deciding to take a year out from management. However, he has refused to rule out the possibility of a return the following year.

    O’Dwyer says he has no plans to put his name forward for any jobs over the next year, despite a vacancy arising in Leitrim following Mickey Moran’s decision to step down for health reasons.

    “I would have a slight involvement with Waterville at the moment but at the present I’m out,” O’Dwyer said in RTE Radio One on Sunday.

    “I said I’d take a year off. What’s going to happen next year? That’s another year in the future.

    “I’ll be thinking about things when January comes. It’s like a drug. People like drugs and drink and cigarettes, the whole lot, but football to me is a real drug and I just can’t get away from it.”
