FAI confirm MNT coaching staff departures

The Football Association of Ireland can today confirm a number of departures from the senior men's national team backroom staff.

Assistant Manager Keith Andrews, Assistant Coach John O'Shea, Chief Scout & Opposition Analyst Stephen Rice, Goalkeeping Coach Dean Kiely and Athletic Performance Coach Damien Doyle have all left their roles.

Following the departure of Stephen Kenny as manager of the Ireland senior men's national team, a review of the coaching staff will take place once the new Head Coach is appointed.

"We would like to thank Keith, John, Stephen, Dean and Damien for their excellent service and commitment. I would particularly like to thank Keith Andrews who has served the Association so well in the Assistant Manager role with both the U-21s and senior team, and he leaves with our very best wishes for his future career in football," said FAI Director of Football Marc Canham.

"The level of professionalism each of them have brought to their roles over their period of time with the Association has been exemplary and we're extremely grateful for their hard work with the senior men's national team. They leave with the Association's gratitude and respect, and the FAI wish them all the very best in the future."
