Red Sox Interview Dale Sveum For Manager

Thursday November 3rd, 2011

The Boston Red Sox have interviewed Milwaukee Brewers hitting coach Dale Sveum for their open managerial job, according to ESPN.

Sveum served as a third base coach with the Red Sox in 2004 and 2005. He was the second person to interview for the job this week; Philadelphia Phillies bench coach Pete Mackanin interviewed on Monday, according to ESPN.

The Red Sox have been looking for a new manager since manager Terry Francona left the organization at the end of the season. Sveum’s only major league managerial experience came when he was named the interim manager of the Brewers for 12 games in September 2008 after manager Ned Yost was fired. The Brewers finished 7-5 under Sveum and won the National League Wild Card that season, losing in the NLDS to the Philadelphia Phillies in four games.
