Burnie United have yet to appoint a coach for the 2011 season.
Sam Cocks coached the side last season but has stood down. He has yet to decide where he will play next season.
Burnie had two applicants for the job, but one withdrew for personal reasons, while the other, an Argentinian, was expecting too much. He was hoping for a large salary and paid accommodation, amongst other things.
Meanwhile, John Wheeler has been appointed as coach of Somerset in the Forestry Tasmania Northern Premier League.
Tom McGinn will again coach Devonport, while Lino Sciulli is in charge of Launceston City and Adam Whitemore of champions Northern Rangers.
