Hereford plan to start holding interviews for their managerial vacancy this week.
Bulls chairman David Keyte has received over 20 applications for the position, which is up for grabs after Richard O'Kelly rejected the chance to manage in the Blue Square Bet Premier following relegation.
Keyte told the club's official website: "We've been pleased by the amount and strength of applicants, proving that the opportunity to be manager of Hereford United is an exciting opportunity.
"We have been strongly advised we need to appoint someone who knows the Conference inside out."
He added: "We need to appoint someone who is prepared and able to work to a tight budget, while producing a team capable of pushing for at least the play-offs."
