Carlow coach Steven Poacher

Carlow football boss Turlough O'Brien is on the lookout for a new coach after Steven Poacher stepped down.

Poacher's departure comes after he recently joined Down minor manager James McCartan's backroom team. He spent three years with Carlow and admitted in a tweet that it was "a hugely difficult decision" to walk away.

A controverial figure, Poacher was hit with a 12-week suspension earlier this year for using “threatening conduct” towards referee James Bermingham at the end of Carlow’s Allianz League Division 3 loss to his native Down in March.

Carlow GAA has thanked the outgoing coach for his contribution.
