"First of all, we are planning to set up a committee which would include former test players. The committee will be given sufficient time to choose a suitable person as the national team coach taking all aspects into account," Nair told PTI here.
The post fell vacant after New Zealander John Wright, who coached the Indian team for four years, decided to call it quits due to family reasons.
The board was looking for a person who would stay at least upto 2007, Nair said, adding "we are now having a breathing time, as there is no match till August. So, we plan to go steadily and firmly on the matter of choosing the coach."
