Graham Kavanagh is set to take the reins at Hartlepool United.
The Daily Mail says Kavanagh is set to take charge of the Football League's bottom club Hartlepool United on a short-term deal.
The former Republic of Ireland midfielder was sacked by Carlisle United last month with the Cumbrians at the foot of League Two.
Pools boss Colin Cooper quit after the full-time whistle and the Victoria Park club will now turn to Kavanagh to assist caretaker Sam Collins, the veteran defender who has doubled as reserve-team coach this season.
