Wolves have, for the time being anyway, scrapped plans to employ a director of football operations.
The initial idea behind changing the structure at Molineux was to employ a European style Director Of Football, who would be the link between chief executive Jez Moxey and manager Ståle Solbakken.
It had been reported that Wolves had opted to go down the controversial path at the time of Solbakken's appointment and a few names were being mentioned around the boardroom at Molineux.
But it would seem that a U-Turn has been made and for the time being at least, with no appointment imminent.
'With the new manager we've got, we are content to run with our current football structure with him at the top of it,'
'There are no plans to make any additional appointments, apart from one extra person Ståle wishes to bring in.' Moxey told Wolves Official Website.
He continued: 'The idea of appointing a sporting or technical director is something we have discussed but we have come to the conclusion that we will continue to run with our existing staff for the time being.
'We are not shelving the idea completely because we remain open-minded about how things might be in the long term.
Meanwhile the Express & Star believe that the 'one extra person Ståle wishes to bring in.' is now unlikely to be Barnd Wiggen.
Wiggen had been Solbakken's assistant at former clubs Copenhagen and Cologne, but he is apparently unwilling to make the move to England.
Former caretaker boss Terry Connor is likely to remain part of Solbakken's backroom team alongside scouts Dave Bowman and Ian Evans, although the E&S do suggest that they might leave once Mick McCarthy finds employment.
