AFC Bournemouth chairman Eddie Mitchell believes there will be a lot of interest in the vacant managerial position at the Goldsands Stadium.
Paul Groves and his assistant Shaun Brooks were both sacked by the club on Wednesday after just one win throughout the first two months of the new League One campaign.
The duo have been offered their previous positions back in the youth team set-up, but for the time being the search for a new manager continues at Dean Court.
Reports have suggested that current AFC Bournemouth 'advisor' Harry Redknapp would not be interested in the role, while reports in the Daily Echo believe the club are set to approach Championship side Burnley over the possibility of Eddie Howe returning to the club.
The bookmakers however have installed Steve Cotterill as the early favourite, while Yeovil manager Gary Johnson has also been linked.
Mitchell told afcb.co.uk via Hot Radio...
"We have got to find another manager and we would love to have one in charge for Saturday`s game, but we want to think about it and appoint someone as and when we are ready, It could be very soon or it could be in the distant future, but we`ve got the personnel to coach the players and get the team ready to play at Coventry on Saturday, and that`s what is going to happen.
"I`ve spoken to various people and my phone hasn`t stopped ringing with inquiries, but I`ve got to sit down and work with the people around me to find the right people to take the club forward.
"I think there will be a lot of interest in the job but I`ve got to make sure I get the right person. It can also be an expensive decision, but we want to get right and we will keep looking."
