Bradford City manager Peter Taylor is being lined up for a coaching role with the England team, according to the Sunday Mirror.
The 57-year-old is reportedly one of six names on a shortlist compiled by the FA to join Fabio Capello's new coaching set-up.
Taylor has previously had two spells as manager of the England-21s and boasts an impressive record of just three defeats in 31 matches.
The Bantams boss was also put in charge of England's 1-0 friendly defeat to Italy in 2001 where he appointed David Beckham as captain for the first time.
After a dismal World Cup campaign this summer, the FA are keen to restructure Capello's backroom staff ahead of Euro 2012 qualifying which is due to kick-off in September.
Former Middlesbrough manager and ex-England international Gareth Southgate has also been linked with a coaching role.
