Cellino's preference to appoint a head coach, rather than a manager, has been criticised, but Redfearn believes that whoever is appointed next can benefit from the system.
"There's always plusses and drawbacks with whichever scenario," the 49-year-old told reporters. "But the good thing about having a head coach rather than a manager is that the responsibility is shared.
"If you've got a manager, usually the buck starts and stops with the manager. A head coach's role is more of a shared responsibility.
"It happens and has been successful in Italy and other countries, so there's no reason why it can't work in this country."
