David Wright has no interest in managing Mets

No, David Wright has no plans to return to the dugout in a managerial capacity.

The Mets are beginning to put together a list of candidates for their managerial job after the firing of Mickey Callaway, and some fans wanted to see Wright on that list. He’s a Mets icon who would have likely been a popular choice, despite a total lack of experience.

However, there’s no chance of that happening, according to Anthony DiComo of MLB.com.

Wright was never considered to be a serious or legitimate candidate, but was more of a suggestion from some avid fans. There’s no indication he’s ever even been interested in managing at any level, at least not right now.
