BBC Sport - Terry Hyland says increasing work commitments led to his exit from Cavan job

Work commitments led to Hyland exit

Terry Hyland says his increasing work commitments led to his decision to step down from the Cavan football manager's job.

"I run a business and have eight or nine lads working for me. I have a responsibility to them," Hyland told RTE.

"During the spring, I would find myself working an 80 to 85-hour week, taking the football into account as well. It was no longer doable."

Hyland guided Cavan to promotion to Division One of the Football League this season but their high hopes of a successful championship were dashed.

During his time in charge, Hyland led Cavan from Division Three to Division One while his Breffni side also reached the All-Ireland quarter-finals in 2013 where they were beaten by Kerry.
