Girardi interviewed for Rangers job
World Series champion Joe Girardi was interviewed Friday by the Texas Rangers in their search for a new manager.
Girardi, the former New York Yankees and Florida Marlins manager, was the first person with big league managerial experience interviewed by the Rangers as they look to replace fired manager Jeff Banister.
People familiar with the details said the Rangers interviewed Girardi inn Arlington. The team is making no public comments about the first round of managerial interviews.
Girardi managed the Yankees to a World Series title in 2009, their 27th overall and only one since 2000. He had a 910-710 record over 10 seasons in New York (2008-17). His contract wasn’t renewed after the Yankees lost to eventual World Series champion Houston in a seven-game ALCS last October, and he was a studio analyst for MLB Network this season.
