Red Sox to Interview Torey Lovullo, Gene Lamont This Week for Managerial Job


Nov 8, 2011

The Red Sox continue to search for their new manager, and they'll add to the list of candidates this weekend when they interview Torey Lovullo and Gene Lamont later this week.

The team announced Tuesday afternoon that they'll interview Lovullo on Friday and Lamont on Saturday.

Lovullo will be a familiar face for Red Sox brass, as he managed the Triple-A Pawtucket Red Sox in 2010. The 46-year-old then joined former Red Sox pitching coach John Farrell in Toronto last season, where Lovullo served as the team's first base coach.

While Lovullo was a name that many suspected would interview all along, the announcement of Lamont's interview is a bit more surprising. The 64-year-old spent three-plus years as manager of the Chicago White Sox from 1992-1995 and served as the Pittsburgh Pirates' skipper from 1997-2000. He posted a .496 winning percentage over that time. He's also a familiar face of sorts as well, as Lamont spent time on the Boston coaching staff in 2001. He's currently Jim Leyland's third base coach with the Detroit Tigers.

The Red Sox have already interviewed Pete Macknanin and Dale Sveum for the managerial vacancy, and they will speak with Sandy Alomar Jr. on Wednesday. Rangers pitching coach Mike Maddux was set to interview, but he pulled his name out of the running.
