Colin Lee has said he still wants the Plymouth job - after being sacked by Walsall for holding talks with Argyle.
Lee told BBC Devon: "It's about wanting to be successful, but with the added incentive of me being able to come back to Devon.
"To be involved with a club that I supported as a child - I used to stand on the Barn Park end and watch them play - would be a honour.
"It's a club I've known all my life, I always look for their results."
Lee added: "To be given the chance to simply discuss the managerial position is great.
"A club with ambition has a clear idea of what they want to achieve, and so it would be a fantastic opportunity for me to work at such a forward-thinking football club."
The Plymouth job became available after Paul Sturrock left to succeed Gordon Strachan at Premiership club Southampton.
Lee is now a free agent, having parted company with Walsall, and so will be free to accept the position if he is offered it.
There is competition from Hibernian boss Bobby Williamson, who was also interviewed, but Lee is confident.
"We discussed a few things and it was interesting to hear what they want for the club. I'm a very ambitious person myself," he said.
