Luton Town manager Nathan Jones hopes to recruit former Nottingham Forest boss Paul Hart to work alongside him at Kenilworth Road.
Hart, 62, became Leeds academy director last September, but left the Elland Road club earlier this month.
"He's someone I would love to bring to the club for lots of reasons," Jones told BBC Three Counties Radio.
"I've always gone to him for advice and I always wanted to work with him again. He's someone I respect highly."
Hart previously worked with Jones at Charlton Athletic.
"Probably one of my best years in football was with him at Charlton," Jones continued.
"He's been a bit of a mentor for me. If there's a possibility that we can do something then that would be a really good addition to our team."
