Coleman has agreed terms on a new two-year deal with the Football Association of Wales which will see him through the Euro 2016 qualification process. He has yet to sign it.
Wales are languishing at the foot of World Cup qualifying Group A after Tuesday's 3-0 defeat by Serbia, having won just two of their eight fixtures.
There is no suggestion from the FAW that they are planning to withdraw the offer, or delay Coleman's signing of the deal until after Wales complete their World Cup campaign against Macedonia and Belgium next month. Coleman himself has said such a move would represent short-termism from the association.
He said: "If we are talking about judging someone over two games, that's short term . . . I know football is short term and that's the way it's gone, it's the same for everyone. But up until this game we've been playing well and progressing."
He added: "You have to look at facts as well. We don't have a squad where we can miss four or five of our best players like Joe Allen, Ashley Williams, Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey. But for us, they've never all been on the pitch together.
"If that continues, with another man in charge, I don't see how there will be any difference. What I'm saying is, with this group, when all the players are fit, whoever is in charge, this group can do good things."
Coleman, though, knows a poor result against Macedonia next time out would be a crushing blow for him and his team who, despite the sense of gloom, could yet finish third in the group and secure a better seeding for the Euros.
Coleman said "We can't finish bottom can we? We don't want to be finishing bottom. But football changes quickly. Before these two games we were positive and looking to finish as high as we can, now we don't want to finish bottom, we need to get off the bottom. I probably can't afford to lose to Macedonia. I think it's one of those games where you find out about people."
