Diarmuid Murphy Gambled Into Hot Favourite For Kerry Job
Next Kerry Manager
Diarmuid Murphy has seen the bulk of support from punters to succeed Éamonn Fitzmaurice as Kerry’s Senior Football Manager since betting opened last Sunday.
Éamonn Fitzmaurice stepped down from the role after six seasons in charge, seeing his side win only one of their Super 8 matches, with both Monaghan and Galway advancing to the All-Ireland semi-finals at their expense.
Murphy, who has four All-Ireland winning medals under his belt as a player, had been available at 5/1 initially,
but the sustained support all week for the Dingle man to get the nod has seen his odds crumble into 1/2.
Two-time All-Ireland MFC winning manager Peter Keane had originally been made the 7/4 favourite by us but he has since drifted out to 4/1 to share second favouritism with current selector Maurice Fitzgerald and Jack O’Connor, who is in the running for third stint on the Kerry touchline.
