Henry's contract has expired after Sunday's World Cup final victory over France and his current assistant, Steve Hansen, is seen as the leading candidate to take over.
But in the days before the World Cup final the 65-year-old Henry refused to discuss his future plans, raising doubts about whether he favors an immediate succession.
Rugby union chief executive Steve Tew said invitations to apply for the job had been sent to prospective candidates.
