The Potters backed him last season after he came under fire following a number of big-name signings flopped during their relegation from the Premier League.
Former Nottingham Forest boss Mark Warburton, ex-West Brom technical director Nicky Hammond and Mike Rigg, formerly of Manchester City, are also targets.
Burnley are starting the interview process, with Warburton — close friends with Dyche — thought to be the preferred option earlier in the search.
The club want any new recruit available to work either at the club’s training base, Gawthorpe Hall, or Turf Moor three days a week.
That represents a similar arrangement to Dyche himself, who shares a flat nearby with assistant Ian Woan.
