Leigh Centurions are searching for a new coach following the resignation of Darren Shaw.
Shaw, who was in his second season in charge at Hilton Park, has cited personal reasons for his decision.
The Australian told BBC Radio Manchester: "The time was right for me to move on."
Assistant Paul Rowley will take temporary charge, although the former hooker has ruled himself out of the permanent position.
Leigh have lost three out of their last four matches, including a surprise 36-10 defeat in the last 16 of the Northern Rail Cup to Featherstone on Sunday.
Shaw admitted: "The performances weren't what we were after on the playing front. I'd been thinking about it for a couple of weeks now."
Former Salford coach Karl Harrison and ex-Widnes boss Neil Kelly are understood to be in the frame to succeed Shaw.
