Kerry manager Eamonn Fitzmaurice has stepped down from his post following his team's elimination from the All-Ireland senior football championship this evening.

Kerry county board have confirmed the news in wake of the Kingdom's 12-point victory over Kildare in Killarney which wasn't enough to see them into the semi-finals after Monaghan's win in Salthill this evening.

Fitzmaurice took over the reins of his home county in 2012 and steered them to All-Ireland glory in 2014, having been previously involved  with the team as a selector.

Kerry also landed six Munster titles in-a-row during his tenure but tonight he has informed the media at Fitzgerald Stadium that he will no longer be staying on in the county's hot seat.
