Former Oldham and Barnsley boss Ritchie applied for the job at Valley Parade when McCall was appointed, but is not looking for a return to football at the moment.
"I did have an interview at Bradford before Stuart got the job and I wouldn't say I'd never go back in (to management)," Ritchie told the Telegraph & Argus.
"Football is still in my blood but at the moment I'm just enjoying what I am doing and I'm not looking at anything.
"I feel very sorry for Stuart actually. It's a tough job anyway and he had to lose some of his good players at the end of last season."
