New Zealand Rugby has begun the process of finding the next All Blacks coach, with an appointment expected prior to Christmas.

NZR Chairman Brent Impey says shortlisting, interviews and negotiations will be conducted through November and early December.

NZ Rugby said in a statement that it had already invited a small group of coaches familiar with New Zealand’s professional rugby environment to apply for the role.

Those to have already expressed an interest in public are current assistant coach Ian Foster, and Crusaders coach Scott Robertson.

Former Chiefs coach and current Glasgow coach Dave Rennie revealed he had been approached by New Zealand Rugby.

The appointment panel includes Impey, former All Blacks coach Sir Graham Henry, incoming chief executive Mark Robinson, high-performance boss Mike Anthony, and former Silver Ferns Coach and High-Performance Sport New Zealand director, Waimarama Taumaunu.

Outgoing All Blacks coach, Steve Hansen had earlier stated that he will be retiring as the All Blacks coach after the Rugby World Cup in Japan.
