Barnsley plan to create a shortlist for their vacant manager's job this weekend and hope to make an appointment before the game against Burton on February 20.
His backroom team of Jamie Clapham (first-team coach), Nathan Winder (head of sports science) and Alex Bailey (first team performance analyst) have all joined him at Elland Road.
Paul Harsley will take caretaker charge of the Tykes for Saturday's South Yorkshire derby against Sheffield Wednesday.
Barnsley then have a free weekend as they are out of the FA Cup, leaving them a window to announce their new boss before they face Burton.
Barnsley are 21st in the Sky Bet Championship table, just one point and one place above the relegation zone going into the weekend's fixtures.
