Graham Henry rules himself out of England coaching role
World Cup-winning coach Graham Henry has ruled himself out of taking charge of England.
Asked whether he could see himself taking over Johnson's post in the near future Henry said: "No.
"I'm contracted to New Zealand until 31 March and I just want to move on."
Henry, however, added that he would be interested in a consultant's role with a side in European competition.
"I've been involved in a large number of Test matches - 142 - and if somebody wants me in this part of the world, I'd like perhaps to have an advisory role at a Heineken Cup team," he commented.
"But I want to live in New Zealand, my family's there and this is a different stage of my life that I want to enjoy."
Henry made it clear that in the longer term he will be staying largely in New Zealand, making any contract with a club or union impossible.
Cardiff Blues have dismissed claims they would approach Henry, although reports suggest the Rugby Football Union could offer him a consultancy role with England.
Henry is in London this week with All Blacks assistant coach Steve Hansen to prepare the Barbarians for their match against Australia at Twickenham on Saturday.
