Terry Hyland has indicated that he will stay on as Cavan manager for the fourth and final year of his term in charge.
Hyland received the backing of the County Management Committee on Monday night and he is expected to be ratified at the next county board meeting.
Cavan were edged out by champions Monaghan in the first round of the Ulster Championship in May.
The Breffni men beat London in their opening qualifier before losing to Roscommon in the second round.
Hyland was appointed Cavan boss in 2012 after the resignation of Val Andrews.
He moved up to the senior side after leading the U21 team to a second successive Ulster title.
