Dewsbury Rams head coach Glenn Morrison has confirmed his interest in the vacant Bradford Bulls post.
The 38-year-old former forward made 56 appearances for the Bulls between 2007 and 2009, making the Super League Dream Team in his first season at Odsal.
Bradford, 13th in Super League, sacked coach Francis Cummins last week.
"Bradford Bulls is close to my heart; it's a great position and I'd love to get in there as a coach," the Australian told BBC Radio Leeds.
"Getting a head coach role in Super League is what everyone wants to do."
The Bulls, who recently lost an appeal against a six-point deduction for going into administration, are nine points from safety with 10 games left.
Former North Queensland and Parramatta Eels player Morrison was appointed Bradford vice-captain by head coach Steve McNamara when he joined from the NRL.
He helped them to third place in his first season at the club, before leaving for Wakefield two years later.
Morrison took over at Championship side Dewsbury in 2012 after a brief spell as Wildcats Under-20s coach, and his team currently lie fifth in the table, 18 points off runaway leaders Leigh.
"I'm really enjoying myself here and contracted here, but it's up to the bosses," he added.
"If they've got an interest it would be great and would be great to be even thought of, but I'm concentrated on the job in hand."
