London - Eddie O'Sullivan is interested in the vacant England coaching job, a week after stepping down as the United States rugby coach.

O'Sullivan's agent John Baker told the Daily Telegraph the Irishman will put his name forward the position vacated by Martin Johnson following a shambolic Rugby World Cup campaign.

"Eddie's big advantage is that he has tremendous experience of the Six Nations and a fantastic track record in that competition," Baker said in Wednesday's edition.

O'Sullivan has been involved in the last four World Cups, with the US in 1999 and 2011, and Ireland in 2003 and 2007. He also assisted on the 2005 British and Irish Lions tour of New Zealand.

Former Australia coach Eddie Jones and Northampton's Jim Mallinder have also expressed interest in the England job.
