THERE was some significant news in Tyrone this evening as it was revealed that former Antrim footballer Kevin Madden has joined the senior intercounty set-up as a coach.
Coaches Peter Donnelly and Stephen O’Neill stepped aside after Tyrone’s All-Ireland semi-final defeat to Kerry, so Madden has been brought in to help fill that gap.
On the news, Tyrone boss Mickey Harte commented: “He’s joining our backroom team for the 2020 season and we’re all very pleased to have him.”
“He’s a broad-based coach, he coaches the entirety of the game, and he has managed clubs himself.
“He knows what the game is all about, and what he writes endorses that view, and we’re delighted to have him.”
