Hull City have already drawn up a shortlist to replace Leonid Slutsky, with Nigel Adkins the favourite to take over at the KCOM Stadium.
Slutsky, who oversaw just four league wins in his 20 Championship games, was dismissed on Sunday after six months in charge.
Sky sources understand the club are looking to appoint a free agent who is in a position to start work immediately.
Former Scunthrope and Southampton manager Adkins has been out of work since leaving Sheffield United in May 2016.
Slutsky won three Russian league titles with CSKA and managed Russia at Euro 2016 but, after a draw and a win in his first two matches, results proved hard to come by.
An injury-time goal earned them a 2-2 draw at Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday but that left Hull 20th in the standings, three points off the relegation zone.
