Report: Tigers, Indians could have interest in hiring Terry Francona

Neither the Detroit Tigers nor the Cleveland Indians have fired their manager yet, but if they do, Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com writes that "insiders" believe that either club could have interest in hiring former Boston Red Sox manager Terry Francona.

Of course, Heyman points out that Francona's name is likely to be linked to any opening, given that he is the most accomplished skipper out there without a job.

Still, the Tigers could be a fit because they are a contender and would not face a lengthy rebuilding process. Francona coached in Motown for one season under Buddy Bell.

Francona is even more familiar with Cleveland since both he and his father played for the Indians, but Heyman says that the Tribe may not be able to afford a two-time World Series champion.

In a phone interview on Wednesday, Francona would only tell Heyman: "I work for ESPN and love it. As I've always said, if the right job came open I'd have to think about it. But I'm really uncomfortable talking about any jobs."
