Former Exeter, Swindon and Bristol City defender Shaun Taylor has revealed that he has held "informal talks" over the managerial vacancy at Exeter.
Taylor has vast experience with Exeter, Swindon and Bristol City
Plymouth-born Taylor, 41, made 200 League appearances for the Grecians between 1986 and 1991.
He is now a youth development coach at Bristol City, who have given permission for him to talk to Exeter.
"It is a job that interests me and I hope to hear more over the next few day," he told Bristol City's website.
"It would mean being in charge of a first team at a club I know well, and I think the time is right in my career."
He held talks with Exeter's director of football, Steve Perryman, and a member of the St James Park board on Wednesday.
The Grecians have been looking for a new manager since it was announced that Eamonn Dolan was leaving to take over as Reading's academy chief.
