The 'uncertainty' over Pat Flanagan's availability to continue as Sligo senior football manager has left the Yeats County top table with no option but to look for a replacement.
The former Westmeath manager has been heavily linked to the vacancy in his native Offaly and a statement issued by Sligo County Board this morning reads: "The Executive of Sligo GAA County Committee has authorised a sub-committee to seek out a suitable person to manage the senior County football panel.
"This decision was arrived at due to the continued uncertainty regarding Pat Flanagan's availability to remain in the role.
"An Coiste Bainistí acknowledge Pat's undoubted talent as a manager and his recent positive contribution to Sligo football.
"We wish him the very best for the future."
