Toal, who first joined in 2007, was described by AIFF General Secretary Kushal Das as a wonderful professional.
"Colm Toal is a wonderful professional and a human being and has given tremendous service for the development of the Indian Youth Teams during his seven-year stint in India," he told
"Recognising the need for Youth Development, Colm was brought in by AIFF and he has successfully delivered most of the expectations of the AIFF. I wish him all the best for all his future endeavours," he added.
Colm stated that he has been "incredibly lucky" for being in India for over seven and a half years.
"In today's Football environment, that is something of. The AIFF can take great credit for the support and encouragement they have given me. I hope our Coaches presently in place will receive the same support in the future," he said prior to his departure.
Colm guided two batches of India U-16 to the Final Phase of the AFC Qualifiers during his contract in India. Besides, he was also incharge of the India U-19 national teams and the AIFF Elite Academy based in Goa.
AIFF Technical Director Robert Baan said Colm's influence over "Youth Players" has been immense.
