He told the 2 Johnnies podcast.
Paul O'Connell has ruled himself out of the running to take over as the new Munster head coach.
Former captain of province and country O'Connell said he would have to feel he would have to be "qualified to go and do it" if he was to ever take on the role.
The current Ireland forwards coach, is the latest man of the province to rule himself out, after La Rochelle coach Ronan O'Gara said he will stay in France.
The Limerick man told The 2 Johnnies podcast that he "wouldn't be doing it", when a vacancy opened up following Johann van Graan's announcement of his departure.
“I wouldn't be qualified to do it," he insisted.
"I was saying the other day, it's like a guy if you were good at pulling pints being asked to run the bar! They're two different things.
“Munster is a very special thing to me. I'd have to feel very right and very qualified to go and do it," he added.
