Sean Cavanagh feels a change of management is needed in Tyrone.

Speaking on The Sunday Game last night, Cavanagh called on Mickey Harte to 'pass the baton' to someone else after 17 years at the helm.   

“He’s been an amazing servant for the county; the three All-Ireland titles,” Cavanagh said in the wake of the Red Hands' All-Ireland SFC semi-final defeat to Kerry.

“But the reality is that the likes of Art McRory and Eugene McKenna were there for a long time before him and did amazing work as well. And there does come a time when that baton has to be passed on.

“He’s given his life to Tyrone football but there are other guys there. The likes of Fergal Logan, Peter Canavan, Brian Dooher are big names in Tyrone football as well. And the core of that team today won an U21 title with those guys. Maybe it’s time for someone like that in.

“The reality is, no one can fault Mickey Harte but time moves on.”
