Tim Wallach, who was thought to be one of the stronger candidates for the job has history with Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski and according to Jonah Keri of ESPN, talks in regards to Wallace taking the job have intensified:
Now for something completely different — an actual source-based rumor. Hearing talks escalating for Tim Wallach re: Tigers manager job.
There’s no mention of just how serious the talks are – so it could just be the Tigers adding Wallach to their short list or it could be Wallach and the Tigers are talking potential contract details. Either way, it’s likely we’ll know in the coming days just how serious the escalating talks are.
Earlier today, it was reported that Lloyd McClendon, the Tigers hitting coach interviewed for the job and said it ‘went well’, which according to the sports world, always happens.
Seriously, has anybody ever failed an interview?
