Lenny Harbinson has opted out of the race to succeed Liam Bradley as Antrim senior football manager.
Harbinson said that new work commitments meant that he wouldn't be able to be considered for the job.
With Aidan O'Rourke ruling himself out of contention, Gearoid Adams is now favourite although Frank Dawson is also still being linked with the position.
Kevin Madden has also been linked with the job but it's not clear whether he will allow his name to be submitted.
Harbinson guided St Gall's to the All-Ireland Club Football title in 2010.
