Joe Girardi, David Ross to interview with Cubs for manager job
The Chicago Cubs will continue their search this week for a new manager, and that will include interviews with some former catchers.
According to both 670 The Score’s Bruce Levine and the Chicago Tribune’s Mark Gonzalez, Joe Girardi is set to interview for the job on Wednesday. David Ross is also expected to interview for the job this week.
Girardi, 51, spent ten years managing the New York Yankees and managed them to one World Series win. He managed the Florida Marlins in 2006 and was fired after the season despite being named Manager of the Year. He currently serves as an analyst for FOX and also is receiving heavy interest from the Mets. He began his playing career with the Cubs.
Ross, 42, played two seasons for the Cubs (2015-2016) and helped them win the World Series. He works as an analyst for ESPN.
The Cubs have also interviewed bench coach Mark Loretta and first base coach Will Venable, according to Gonzalez.
Of the four, Girardi is the only one with previous pro baseball managerial experience.
