The Boston Red Sox are returning to Los Angeles for their second managerial search in as many years.

The Los Angeles Times reports that the Red Sox have approached Dodgers Third Base Coach Tim Wallach about the top position at Fenway Park, a position that Wallach was in the running for last off-season as well. However, in 2011 Wallach's contract with the Dodgers prevented him from talking to certain teams about open positions, and the Red Sox ended up hiring Bobby Valentine.

Valentine was fired last week after a season of failure on and off the Diamond, and the Red Sox have scheduled an interview with the now-out of contract Wallach.
