Hearts interim manager Stevie Frail is to leave Tynecastle and will be replaced by a new boss as Hearts plan ahead for next season.
Frail was unavailable for comment on Wednesday, but BBC Sport can reveal that he is aware that a new managerial team is to be brought in.
Hearts, who finished the season in a disappointing eighth place, appointed Frail caretaker boss in January.
He had previously been in joint charge along with Anatoly Korobochka.
That followed the departure of first-team coach Valdas Ivanauskas in March 2007.
Mark McGhee has been widely tipped to take over at Hearts after leading Motherwell to third place in his first season at Fir Park.
But Well chairman John Boyle has said that he has had no approach from Hearts for his manager's services.
"I had dinner with Mark the other night and, if he's leaving, he never mentioned it to me," said Boyle.
"Hearts have made no approach and I'm pretty confident of keeping Mark for next season."
