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.
For the multitudes who have asked: David Wright will not be applying for the Mets' manager job. He appreciates your interest, but is quite content right now spending time at home with his wife and two daughters.

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. He does serve as a special assistant to the GM for the franchise, and has apparently played a role in some key moves. That, however, is where it ends, and where he seems to be content right now.
