Kirsten had been identified by many as the ideal man to succeed Andy Flower, but he has said that such an assignment requires a lot of travelling, and that he would like to give whatever spare time he has at present to his wife and young children.
The BBC quoted him, as saying that he could consider a possible coaching assignment with England later in life.
Kirsten also confirmed he had received no approach from the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB).
Kirsten played 101 Tests and 185 one-day internationals for South Africa in a decade-long international career.
He announced in May 2013 that he would step down as South Africa coach at the end of his contract three months later.
