Mick McCarthy had earlier this week been linked with the vacant South Korean international job, along with former Liverpool manager Gerard Houllier, with it claimed the position was a straight shoot out between the two.
McCarthy has admitted to the Wolves website that he was flattered to be linked with the job but after talking to Wolves owner Steve Morgan and the clubs chief executive Jez Moxey he decided it wasn't the post for him, insisting he has always been committed to the club: "I was very flattered to be contacted and to be considered a candidate alongside someone of the calibre of Gerard Houllier.
"But I have always been committed to the job at Wolves. I love it here and, having spoken to Steve, I made it clear I'm staying."
You Young-chul, a Korean spokesman for the Korean FA had said that the job would be McCarthy's or Houllier's, but he too has since ruled out the position so their search will have to continue.
Wolves star Michael Kightly has also told the Wolves website that when he first heard the news that McCarthy was in the running for the South Korean job was shocked, but he is delighted that he will be staying: 'It was a tremendous shock that I couldn't take in at first.
"Then I got to thinking that, as a good manager, he's obviously going to be linked with good jobs.
"But I'm really glad he's staying. I think that as a club we are very fortunate. There have been statements made about us keeping the best players but it's important we keep a top manager.
The highly rated youngster also voiced his support for McCarthy, the man who brought him to the club, and questioned those that have questioned the job he is doing: "What he has done for this club is unbelievable and it amazes me that a few supporters have been giving him stick. I feel they really ought to think hard about things."
