America captain Tom Watson has already named four-time major winner Ray Floyd and double US Open champion Andy North as his vice-captains.
The smart money appears to be on Ryder Cup veterans Sam Torrance and Des Smyth.
Gleneagles will be the venue when holders Europe take on the US from September 26-28.
The Americans have not won the trophy in Europe since 1993, when Watson was captain for the first time.
McGinley has not revealed how many vice-captains he will have but is expected to confirm that at his press conference in Dublin this morning.
"The vice-captaincy role, like the captaincy role, has evolved a lot over the years as the Ryder Cup has grown," McGinley said.
"The demands of the Ryder Cup inside the ropes have grown and so have the roles of the captains and vice-captains.
"I've been vice-captain twice so I know what the role entails and I know the personalities I'm looking for and the traits I'm looking for in potential vice-captains, too."
