The former QPR boss has been linked with becoming Director of Football.
The Rams are currently searching for a new long-term manager, after relieved Paul Clement of his job earlier in the campaign and putting Darren Wassall in temporary charge.
However, it seems that they are not entirely focused on their managerial search, but instead keen to hire a Director of Football to help out their temporary boss.
That man may be former Tottenham Hotspur and Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp, with the Daily Mail reporting he is close to agreeing to take up a role at the club.
Redknapp has experience in the Championship having most recently steered QPR out of the division via the playoffs in 2014, courtesy of a win over Derby in the final.
He has been out of work since leaving Rangers in January 2015 on medical terms, with that season seeing them relegated back into the Championship.
And it is fair to say that the response from Derby fans on Twitter on the potential appointment has not been a positive one.
If Redknapp gets anywhere #dcfc, Morris has officially lost the plot. I'm gonna close my eyes, count to 100, and hope this rumour disappears— Chris Parsons (@ChrisParsons274) March 14, 2016
Imagine thinking that Harry Redknapp is the man who should be in charge of deciding how to spend your money. Derby really are screwed.— Jason Le Miere (@JasonLeMiere) March 14, 2016
Harry Redknapp on the way, how long before we go bust?— Aidan Bonser (@AidanBonser) March 14, 2016
Redknapp as DOF, means you want a top class coach, someone who's gets the best out of players... **cough** Steve Mac **cough** #dcfcfans— Jake Gallear (@Gallear92) March 14, 2016
Surely what ever wages we pay redknapp would be better used on getting a proper manager in? #dcfcfans— Craig Warren (@dcfcwarren) March 14, 2016
Not sure what's more terrifying - Redknapp at the club or the fact this means Wassall might stay on as head coach. #dcfc— Chris Parsons (@ChrisParsons274) March 14, 2016
