Former Tipp football boss Peter Creedon and his Laois management team have stepped away from their positions, after just one season in charge.
There had been speculation over the future of his position in recent days but Creedon has confirmed that he and his backroom members will not seek reappointment for 2018.
Although he had the support of the County Board executive and the Laois players,
he said that staying on would have been divisive for the county, given the nature of a recent board meeting.
This was a referrance to comments that were made of a big drink culture in the squad, which Creedon described as deeply unfair.
