Report: Dodgers interviewing Darin Erstad for manager job

Friday October 30th, 2015

The Dodgers plan to interview Nebraska coach and former MLB outfielder Darin Erstad for their managerial opening, reports Fox Sports’s Ken Rosenthal.

Erstad, 41, retired as a player in 2009. He has coached at Nebraska, where he played college baseball, since 2010 and been head coach since 2011. He has managed Nebraska to a 139–97 record in four seasons. Nebraska made the NCAA tournament’s Super Regionals in 2014.

The former Angels, White Sox and Astros outfielder/first baseman won three Gold Gloves, was a two-time All-Star and won the World Series with L.A. in 2002. He led the league in hits in 2000.

The NL West champion Dodgers parted ways with manager Don Mattingly last week. Reports have linked current Dodgers farm director and former Major League outfielder Gabe Kapler to the job as well.
