Steve Hansen will announce his future decisions before Christmas, where he will see Joe Schmidt join the New Zealand coaching class after the 2019 World Cup.
All Blacks said he already knows his long-term plan and will release it year-round.
Irish New Zealand coach Schmidt will be able to go back to New Zealand after canceling the contract after the World Cup next year. All Blacks is actively preparing for coaching.
Schmidt won a 16-9 victory in Dublin, Ireland, to win a 40-29 victory in Chicago in 2016.
Asked if Schmidt is going to return to New Zealand next year, Hansen said, "Well, I do not know if you should ask, we'll all be presenting soon. [New Zealand for the All Blacks tour] I was going to make an announcement, and at some stage before Christmas I would do it. "
New Zealand is not lacking in quality coaching options to enter the All Blacks role if Hansen decides to retire after the next World Cup. Hansen was the assistant to Graham Henry when New Zealand won the World Cup in 2011 and led All Blacks to take over as the manager of the Webb Ellis Trophy in England in 2015.
A 59-year-old ex-officer can still choose the All Blacks helm, but must be assisted by Ian Foster as an assistant. New Zealand has a policy of promoting coaches from the super rugby supervision to the All Blacks rank, but former captain Mike Caw has already claimed that Schmidt can be pulled into the test setup .
The 12th attempt on Jay Stockdale's 14th test led to Ireland's massive victory against New Zealand in Dublin on Saturday. Schmidt's men claimed a second victory for the successive world champions.
New Zealand lost to Ireland, who finished second, but held the top spot in the world.
Hansen claimed before the conflict that the winner would be entitled to be the best in the world, regardless of rankings. And now the president of New Zealand has asked Ireland to respond to the tag.
Hansen asked Schmidt about how Ireland has improved. Their defense is great. The two teams defended for a long time last night and kept it really well. Their scrum was good. Everyone in the team is working, and Joe is clearly leading it.
"They have become a team that believes in themselves and feels proud of what they do, but it is their turn. [as the world’s best] We will see how they respond. "
