Azhar Mahmood says Mickey Arthur would be a great choice to succeed England head coach Trevor Bayliss.
Arthur is seeking a new challenge after it was announced on Wednesday that he will not stay on as Pakistan head coach.
Bowling coach Mahmood, batting coach Grant Flower and trainer Grant Luden also departed this week after their contracts expired.
The vastly experienced Arthur is reportedly a contender to replace Bayliss when the Ashes series against Australia ends next month.
Mahmood believes Arthur could be a resounding success if he lands the job and the former Pakistan all-rounder - who lives in England - would relish the opportunity to work with the South African again.
He told Omnisport: "Mickey has served South Africa, he's served Australia. He's been around for a while, so why not, I think he would do a great job
"I'd love to work with Mickey, we had a great relationship and if he becomes head coach and I had the opportunity to stay and work in England, you can't ask for anything more than that."
Mahmood added: "Mickey is very passionate, very emotional. He does things with his heart 100 per cent, whatever he does. I had a great time working with him, I learned a lot from him and I think he was the right man for Pakistan.
"Unfortunately, according to the pundits, we didn't produce, but there are issues with the fitness culture of players in Pakistan, there are a lot of unfit players. Our fielding, batting and bowling improved. People have to be given time, you can't produce overnight.
"Throughout the period they [the Pakistan Cricket Board] never decided on a captain full-time, that was a problem."
Mahmood said he is open to opportunities in international and domestic cricket.
"I'm looking at my options, it's good to have a little bit of a break but I've already had offers, my phone has been ringing a lot and that was also the case while I was doing the job with Pakistan," he said.
"I have a lot to offer, I played one-day cricket and have been involved in the T20 format all over the world.
"I would love to work in a capacity where I can pass on my huge experience, whether that be in domestic cricket in England so I can spend more time with my family, while also possibly working in tournaments in other countries.
"If an international opportunity comes up, then let's see. I am open to everything right now. People know I am available now so there is a lot of interest, I just need to work out which is best for my future."
