Brennan replaces Eamonn Kelly who stood down from the position in June, stating that he would not be seeking a third year in charge.
Kelly’s side defeated Meath to avoid a relegation playoff in the Joe McDonagh Cup earlier this year.
Brennan was proposed for the position last month after being picked by a selection committee of Niall Rigney, Declan Conroy and Eamon Jackman.
