According to BBC Solent’s Jordan Clark, the 64-year-old is holding talks with the non-leaguers who are currently managed by Brian Stock.
Stock played for O’Driscoll at both AFC Bournemouth and Doncaster Rovers and a reunion at the Bob Lucas Stadium would be seen as something of a coup by the Terras.
As well as serving as the Blues’ head academy coach for more than two-and-a-half years, O’Driscoll has been the assistant manager at Liverpool, while he has also managed Nottingham Forest, Bristol City and England’s under-19s.
The former Republic of Ireland international announced his resignation from his Pompey post in September.
O’Driscoll cited personal reasons for his decision to step away from a job he had held since March 2019.
That’s after The News reported concerns about the academy set-up’s ongoing funding and facilities were a factor in his decision to step away,
It’s understood O’Driscoll is close to completing his three-month notice, which will then allow him to link up with Stock at Weymouth.
The Terras currently sit 20th in the table having lost their past five games in the division.
