Sol Campbell will not be joining QPR's coaching staff on a more permanent basis, Sky sources understand.
Campbell has been spending time coaching the club's academy and U23 players but it has been on an informal basis.
The former Arsenal and Tottenham defender has been out of professional football since 2012 and spent time in politics, including a failed bid to become the Conservative Party candidate for Mayor of London.
But he will be returning to the game as assistant manager to new Trinidad & Tobago boss Dennis Lawrence.
His time at QPR has been partially used to practice the training drills he could be using alongside Lawrence when he takes up the role later this month.
Campbell told Sky Sports News HQ that he was thankful to QPR director of football Les Ferdinand and technical director Chris Ramsey for the chance to hone his coaching skills.
