Local boy Jack tipped for County job
While Jack's only frontline managerial experience came as player-manager at Montrose in 1993, his coaching credentials are strong. The Second Division leaders have long been admirers of the 48-year-old's work as the SFA community coach in the area.
With chairman Roy MacGregor on holiday, County expect to keep under-19 coach Davie Kirkwood in temporary charge for the trip to Ayr on 20 October.
Jack played at Victoria Park as a teenager and said: "The time could be right for me to get back into the game. I could think of no better club than Ross County to do that with. I'm a local boy and County have played a big part in my life."
Former Clyde manager Joe Miller, who quit his post at Broadwood in May, is also understood to have applied for the vacant County post.
