Galway manager Pádraic Joyce said that Jim McGuinness' involvement with the Tribesmen was a one-off session, but he has not ruled out utilising the former Donegal boss again.
Joyce will wait for feedback from the players before deciding if McGuinness will have further involvement, but he said the initial reaction was very positive.
He was also displeased that a video of the former All-Ireland winning Donegal manager working with the players at Tuam Stadium was used on social media.
Meanwhile, Galway could be without their captain Shane Walsh for the start of the Championship after he was injured on club duty.
The Kilkerrin-Clonberne man is currently in an orthopaedic boot as he recovers from knee and ankle injuries.
He looks set to miss Sunday's clash with Mayo and is in a race against time for the Connacht semi-final against Sligo on November 7.
