Tony Smith took over from Brian Noble back in 2007
England are set to appoint a full-time head coach early next year to replace Tony Smith, who quit on Sunday.
Smith, who combined coaching roles with England and Warrington, resigned after Saturday's 46-16 loss to Australia.
The 42-year-old Australian, whose contract expired at the end of the month, said he quit for family reasons.
A four-man panel, aided by Smith, has been set up and is likely to make an appointment ahead of England's mid-season international against France.
The panel is being chaired by Rugby Football League chief executive Nigel Wood.
In addition to taking charge of the national team, the new coach will oversee England under-20s and work with the elite squad to develop a four-year plan to produce 30 world-class players for the World Cup in 2013.
Smith, who took over from Brian Noble in March 2007, has said he will continue to support the England side and the Rugby Football League in their quest to find his successor.
