"We've convened an emergency meeting of the board on April 10 when we will discuss the Dav Whatmore issue," Mahbub Anam, Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) general secretary, said.
"We have read some of his interviews in the media.
"Before the meeting, we will talk to him about these interviews and reports. And then we will discuss all the issues in the meeting," he added.
Whatmore, who coached Sri Lanka to World Cup victory in 1996, has earned respect in Bangladesh after his young team pulled off a string of victories against some of the world's top teams, ironically including a memorable defeat of India in the Caribbean.
"I'm definitely interested," Whatmore told Thursday's Times of India in reference to the vacant coaching role.
Whatmore's contract with Bangladesh expires after the World Cup, in which the Bangladeshis still have four more Super Eight matches to play after they surprisingly progressed to the second round of the tournament triggering celebrations all over the cricket-mad south Asian country.
"It was a tremendous performance," Anam said.
"We set the goal of winning a place in the Super Eight and we have just won that.
"Definitely it was a great performance by the team and the coach."
Anam, a leading businessman in Bangladesh, played a key role in persuading Whatmore to take over Bangladesh in 2003.
"We had to chase him for months. Under him the team has grown," Anam said.
"We are no longer the same old team."
The 53 year-old Australian previously showed interest in coaching India when Chappell took over two years ago, with the local media reporting that the BCB doubled Whatmore's salary and added more perks to keep him in Bangladesh at the time.
