Dyson coached Sri Lanka to a series victory over England in 2003
The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has dismissed speculation that coach John Dyson has been approached to fill the vacant England role.
The Australian recently led the West Indies to their first Test series win in five years, beating England 1-0.
But WICB chief executive Dr Donald Peters said he had not received any contact from England about Dyson.
"He has not been approached by England, he has a contract (with the WICB) until 2010," he told BBC Radio 5 Live.
Acting coach Andy Flower and Kent coach Graham Ford are among a group of candidates who have applied to succeed Peter Moores, who was sacked in January following a public falling out with former England captain Kevin Pietersen.
Dyson's reputation has been significantly enhanced since taking charge of a West Indies side in desperate turmoil in October 2007, transforming a disparate and unorganised team into a cohesive and disciplined unit.
His current contract expires in November 2010 but Dr Peters admitted the WICB would not be able to compete with the financial clout of the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) or contest an official approach should Dyson receive an offer to become England coach.
