Armagh's minor footballers will be managed by Brendan Hughes in 2021.
The Orchard County have been on the lookout for a replacement for Ciaran McKeever since he left the post at the end of last month to take on a new role in Kieran McGeeney's senior management set-up.
Pearse Og's manager for their famous Armagh SFC victory in 2009, Hughes brings a wealth of experience and previously spent two seasons as a county senior selector under Paul Grimley.
His appointment was ratified at tonight's Armagh county board meeting:
