England 's interim head coach Paul Collingwood has revealed he would be interested in taking the role full-time.
Former England star cricketer Collingwood was named interim coach in February following Chris Silverwood's axing after the humiliating 4-0 Ashes defeat.
He will take charge of England's upcoming three-Test series against the West Indies and he is in the frame to get the job permanently.
Interim managing director Sir Andrew Strauss has said Collingwood is "definitely one we should have an eye on moving forward for a head coach role".
Now, Collingwood has revealed he would "never say never" to taking the job, with the likes of Justin Langer and Gary Kirsten also in the frame.
Speaking to Sky Sports , Collingwood said: "Look, I would never say never, but my main focus right now is these next four weeks. If we get that right, hopefully we can get performances out on the park and we can rebuild.
"Playing for England is a really special thing, having the Three Lions on your shirt. Sometimes you probably don't realise that when you are actually playing for England, but (you do) when you finish playing and you look back on your career.
"It is an amazing job. To be coach and to try to help these guys get to where they need to be feels special as well. So I would never say never, but I am just concentrating solely on these next four weeks.
"I have had a little bit of experience in the past couple of years of taking over on an interim basis, and obviously I have done the T20s recently.
"I haven't got the experience behind us. I haven't done County Cricket or anything like that, but I have certainly got the passion to try to make a difference. I try to bring people closer together, build teams, build relationships.
"The word unity keeps coming around and making sure that when you get out on that park, we are all driving in one direction and that is key for these next three Test matches."
