Scotland's new coach will face a gentle start to his tenure after the SRU confirmed just one of the Southern Hemisphere's powerhouses will arrive in Edinburgh for the autumn Tests.
Scotland will face Fiji, Australia and Argentina in November's matches, a considerably weaker set of opponents than Frank Hadden faced over the past three years.
Last year, Scotland were swept away by New Zealand's second string before being narrowly edged out by South Africa and enjoying an easy win over Canada.
Murrayfield will host all three games with Fiji first up on November 14, Australia a week later and the Pumas rounding off the series on November 28.
Scotland faced the Pumas last summer and drew the series 1-1 in Argentina, the South Americans having knocked the Scots out of the 2007 World Cup at the quarter-final stage.
Fiji have recently leapfrogged Scotland in the world rankings while Australia have enjoyed success over Scotland in all of their recent visits to the country.
"The 2009 Bank of Scotland Corporate autumn Tests will be an exciting time for Scottish Rugby," said SRU chief executive Gordon McKie.
"A new Scotland coach will be in place for these matches, which will mark the beginning of our attempts to raise the standard of the national team and give the supporters the performances we all want."
