The former Tyrone star took over the Ulster side two years ago, signing a three year contract, but has ultimately cut his time there short.

Fermanagh were relegated to division three last season and suffered a first round defeat in the championship to Monaghan, which saw their season end early.

McMenamin's period in charge was hugely affected by COVID-19, with lockdowns, virtual sessions, and strange season schedules all to contend with.

“Fermanagh County Committee would like to thank Ryan and his entire backroom team for all their hard work and commitment over the last two years,” said a Fermanagh statement.

“We wish Ryan and all members of his backroom team every success for the future.”

This was McMenamin's firsts tint in charge of an inter-county team, having enjoyed a hugely successful playing career with his native Tyrone.

The former Red Hands player was a notorious man-marker, famous for getting inside of his opponents heads, and not shy about leaving in a hard tackle or two.

Before retiring, he accumulated three All-Irelands with his home county, and is widely regarded as one of the best cover-backs of the modern era.
