Graham Westley's assistant manager at Stevenage Borough and Preston North End has declared an interest in the vacant Lincoln City job.
Dino Maamria, a former Conference manager of the year, is understood to be keen on succeeding David Holdsworth who left the club by mutual consent yesterday.
The Tunisian left League One Preston earlier this month after Westley paid the price for a poor run of results.
But he was a key figure in Stevenage's success as they rose through the Blue Square Bet Premier, before winning promotion to League One.
Maamria was appointed by Westley after a remarkable spell at Northwich Victoria where he saved them from relegation from the Blue Square Bet Premier in 2008.
They were 19 points adrift of safety yet incredibly he managed to steer them free of the drop a feat which won him Conference manager of the year.
Other names in the frame are Gary Simpson, Grant Brown, who is in caretaker charge, and Dean Windass.
