Ghana Football Association says applicants for the vacant Black Stars coaching job have an equal chance of success.
An eight-man team headed by Ghana FA president Kwesi Nyantakyi will begin work next week to review the over 120 applications.
GFA Vice president Fred Pappoe who doubles as management committee chairman of the national team claims they are no frontrunners for the job.
"I think the platform is level for each and every one. We must be fair, we must be transparent. At this stage nobody can talk about favourites," Pappoe told a local radio station on Friday.
"This eight-man team will sit through, short list and do due diligence and interview the top four or five candidates on the way to selecting the next coach for the Black Stars."
The Ghana FA wants to appoint a top notch coach to better the country's quarter-final feat at the 2010 World Cup finals in South Africa.
Over 120 coaches including renowned Luis Felipe Scolari, former Real Madrid boss Juande Ramos and Lucien Favre have applied for the job.
Ghana have been without a substantive coach following the departure of Serb Milovan Rajevac to Saudi side Ahli Jeddah two months ago.
