Geraint Williams says he would be interested in the manager's job at Bristol Rovers – the club where he launched his playing career.
But the former Leyton Orient and Colchester United boss says he has had no contact so far from the Pirates.
Williams was heavily linked with the job following Paul Trollope's departure last season.
"I was interviewed last year before the club appointed Dave Penney," said Williams.
"I have had no contact from them this time, but I would be interested in the position. I had seven very happy years at the club after leaving school."
The 50-year-old former Welsh international joined Rovers in 1980 and made 141 appearances for the club before having spells at Derby County, Ipswich Town and Colchester.
He managed at Colchester after a spell as assistant.
It is now understood Rovers are unlikely to name a new manager until next week, with caretaker Shaun North set to remain in charge for tomorrow's home game against League Two leaders Crawley Town.
North remains unclear about his future, or whether he will remain at the club after the arrival of a new boss.
Striker Jo Kuffour yesterday left Rovers on a permanent move to Gillingham. He had only just returned from a three-month loan spell at the League Two club.
