Former Crystal Palace manager Ian Holloway will have input on his successor.
Holloway and Palace co-chairman Steve Parish announced the split by mutual consent at a hastily-arranged press conference yesterday.
Parish said he would consult Holloway when it came to appointing the new manager, saying they needed someone with more top-flight experience.
Former Stoke boss Tony Pulis would fit that bill, having established the Potters in the top flight before leaving at the end of last season.
On Pulis, Parish said "He's never been relegated, and he's out of work. We'll look. People with some kind of affinity with the club, that does help when times are tough. I wouldn't discount anyone."
