However, the Yankees recently announced they plan to expand their search, and are in no rush to name a new skipper.
Ken Rosenthal of The Atlantic reported the Yankees plan to interview additional managerial candidates. The list beyond the five initial candidates is unknown at the time.
#Yankees plan to interview additional managerial candidates, sources confirm to The Athletic. Length of list beyond initial five is not known. @Jim_BowdenSXM was first to report on additional interviews. Team not in rush; only club still looking for a manager.
Following their elimination from the American League Championship Series, the Yankees parted ways with 10-year manager Joe Girardi. Yankees GM Brian Cashman later added that it’s possible the team could be without a manager by the Winter Meetings, Christmas, and New Year’s Day.
The Yankees are currently the only team searching for a manager.
