Australian David Saker wants to stay on as England's bowling coach, but he knows the decision is out of his hands following the team's failed summer.
England are set to launch a savage review at the end of the tour after losing the Ashes 5-0 and flopping in the one-day series, which they currently trail 3-0.
Saker joined England's coaching group in 2010, with the 47-year-old playing a key role in the bowling department as the team soared to the top of the Test rankings a year later.
But their dismal Ashes performance has seen them slip to fourth, with huge question marks now surrounding the future of coach Andy Flower and captain Alastair Cook.
Saker could also feel the heat.
Paceman James Anderson arrived in Australia as one of the world's best bowler, but he left as a shattered figure after taking just 14 wickets at an average of 43.9 during the five-Test series.
Steve Finn's form deteriorated so badly that he was sent home without playing a game, while fellow giants Chris Tremlett and Boyd Rankin also failed to fire.
Stuart Broad stood tall in the face of adversity, but spinner Graeme Swann was forced into retirement after realising his body could no longer handle the rigours of five-day cricket.
Saker says he wants the chance to help rebuild England into the powerhouse they once were.
"I would love to," Saker said.
"With what has happened here there's no doubt there will be some reviews done and some people will probably be put under a lot of pressure.
"That's the nature of the business.
"We're here to win games of cricket and haven't been good enough.
"People should be accountable for that - players and management. Things will change and we'll fight on. I hope I'll be a part of that."
Rankin will miss Friday's one-day clash with Australia at the WACA Ground due to a hamstring strain.
Saker backed Finn to rediscover his mojo, saying the 24-year-old still had a big future in English cricket.
"He's quite obsessive about the way he works," Saker said.
"You can never really complain about someone who works as hard as he does.
"But sometimes the harder you work, things get worse.
"He's done really well before and I know he'll bounce back."
