Aaron Boone among candidates to be Yankees' next manager, report says

However, it was a tumultuous time for the organization with significant front office turnover and a lack of talent on the field. First base coach Tony Pena also stands out as an internal candidate, and one-time Yankee player Jerry Hairston Jr.is also a reported candidate.

Aaron Boone, who hit one of the most famous homers in New York Yankees history and has served as an analyst on ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball the past two years, is among the candidates to be the Yankees' next manager, according to sources.

The Yankees have interviewed veteran manager Eric Wedge to replace the recently-departed Joe Girardi, the team announced on Friday.

The following offseason, Boone tore a knee ligament playing pickup basketball, which helped pave the way for the Yankees trading for Alex Rodriguez from the Rangers. After resigning in 2013, he accused the club of being dysfunctional and said there was no leadership under general manager Jack Zduriencik.

The fact that Boone hasn't been interviewed yet isn't surprising.

Wedge was a "cup of coffee" player in the majors, getting 86 at-bats over four seasons with Boston (1991-92, 1995) and Colorado and making 23 appearances at catcher.
