Part two of our look at potential managerial candidates for the Pittsburgh Pirates takes a look at three coaches that were involved in the MLB postseason
Earlier this week, we took a look at three potential managerial candidates for the Pittsburgh Pirates. These three candidates – John Wehner, Jason Kendall, and Jeff Bannister – all had one thing in commons. This one thing is that all three have major ties to the Pirate organization.
Today, we will take a look at another group of potential candidates. Again, these three candidates once again all have something in common.
With today’s three, the commonality is that all three are currently on coaching staffs that participated in the postseason this fall. Two of the three are still in the postseason. This could cause a hold up in the interview process if the Pirates are indeed interested in any of these potential candidates.
Remember, prior to being hired as Pirate manager Clint Hurdle was the hitting coach for the American League Champion Texas Rangers. Due to this, the team had to wait to interview him and he was not named manager until November 14, 2010.
Now, let’s dive into part two of looking at potential managerial candidates for general manager Neal Huntington and the Pirates.
