Aidan O'Rourke has quit his role as Kieran McGeeney's assistant at Kildare after two seasons with the Lilywhites.
The former Armagh player, who won the 2002 All-Ireland title with McGeeney, is leaving the Leinster side because of the amount of travel involved.
O'Rourke had to drive a six-hour round trip to training sessions in Newbridge.
He was recently appointed as the full-time GAA Development Officer as Queen's University in Belfast and he plays club football with Dromintee.
Kildare made their All-Ireland exit this year after a dramatic 1-12 to 0-14 defeat to Donegal in the quarter-finals.
