FA chief executive Brian Barwick (pictured right), international committee chairman Noel White and Premier League chairman Dave Richards are the three men who have been appointed to find a new boss.
BBC Sport rounds up the latest news and speculation surrounding the vacant England job.
Curbishley told the same paper he has not been put off by the furore surrounding his meeting with the FA.
He said: "It has not put me off one bit. I want the England job."
The latest odds have Martin O'Neill as a 5/4 favourite, with
Alan Curbishley 5/2, Sam Allardyce 6/1, Stuart Pearce 7/1 and Steve McClaren 8/1. (Odds supplied by Ladbrokes are correct on 14 March.
Send us your comments on who should be England coach and why using the form in the top right and we will post a selection here.
Don't choose Pearce for his passion. I can remember when Kevin Keegan was installed for his passion. We all know what a disaster that was.
Philip Knight, London UK
If Sam Allardyce gets the job I'll leave the country. His style of ugly football that would make us the laughing stock of the world.
The Special One has to be involved. He is Special in every sense and could combine England and Chelsea.
Jim Cullen, England
It will be a tough job for anyone to take but I think it will be Alan Curbishley
Adam Royall, Wales
Has to be Martin O'Neill. He will win tournaments for us - otherwise Stuart Pearce!
luke ventham, ireland but english
Stuart Pearce has only been a manager for five minutes! Please FA don't be fooled by his apparent indifference. I think he wants it big-time. How dare he consider himself qualified.
Nick Passingham, Canada
Stuart Pearce doesn't think he's qualified to do the job. He's said so clearly. Your Canadian correspondent is totally out of order to impune one of the few straightforward honest men in the game.
I think Pearce would bring back the passion that has been so sorely missed under Sven.
Scolari's keen on the job. He's a winner at the very top level there is - plus the fact that he's knocked us out the last two tournaments gets removed from the equation if he's on our side.
Rennie Kapila, England
It has to be big Phil. Think about Lampard, Gerrard, Rooney, Cole and the like playing like Ronaldinho or Deco!
Luke Randall, UK
Allardyce all the way. We need British beef.
We need someone who can win tournaments. Our players are good enough. There are no English candidates with experience at that level, so we shouldgo for Hiddink, with an English sidekick.
I would like Guus Hiddink, great record, World Cup semi with South Korea, good record with PSV and taken Australia to the World Cup.
Ian Robins, United Kingdom
Who ever it is, please let them be English. Lets face it, Thierry Henry can't play for England so why can we have non English managers? I think Stuart Pearce and Alan Curbishley jointly would do a great job!!
The key requirements for the job are a thick skin to put up with constant tabloid intrusion and a proven track record of international success. Enthusiasm and commitment are not enough.
Joe of London, UK
Please someone offer the job to Alec Ferguson and stop talking about these lightweights!
Why not Ferguson? His track record speaks for its self and with the quality we have he could put us on the mark.
Lee Callaway, England, Bath
Martin O'Neill without a doubt. Look what he did to Celtic
Mark Hughes should also throw his hat into the ring, he's got management experience at International level and would do a great job. It would be a shame if he was overlooked.
Andy White, England
It's a straight choice between Sam Allardyce and Martin O'Neill. Both have the credentials to be successful, and the theroy that they don't play attractive football just dosen't stand up to close scrutiny.
Kevin Bray, UK
As a Charlton fan I have seen Curbs bring the club on leaps and bounds and think he is a great manager. However, I don't think he's the right man for England - he needs a bit more pizazz! Guus Hiddink's the man with the experience and is the best man for the job. Who cares if he's not British if he's gonna win us the World Cup?
Alan Curbishley has not managed at the top level of club football and should therefore not be in the running for the England manager's job.
Eugene Joseph Bell,
It's clear to me that Alan Curbishley will get the job. He's dedicated, hard working and never falls out with any of his players. Plus he's English and he's better than Charlton. No offence Charlton but I think you've been hanging on to Curbs for too long...
From an outsider I believe the best bet would be for Peter Taylor to be promoted from the Under 21's. France, Argentina etc do it, so why not England? He knows all of the players and also was the one who gave Beckham the captaincy.
Barry Thomas, Wales
Simple as that.
The dream team - Sir Clive Woodward with Glenn Hoddle as assistant. CW knows how to win and is a great manager, GH is unsurparssed at football tactics and skills.
Trevor Brooking - Why not, respected, dedicated, savvy and clean as a whistle.
Anyone but Martin O'Neill. All he's done is get a group of over 30s to the final of a minor Euro trophy and someone thinks he's got the credentials to manage England. Unbelieveable.
The Rye, England
Well of course I'd back O'Neill ... and that team of over 30s overcame some good English opposition on the way to the minor European competition as i recall ... and when did an English manager win even that trinket?
Please take Klinsmannn!
