Jason Varitek Probably Won’t Be Red Sox’s Next Bench Coach, And Here’s Why


November 8, 2016

Torey Lovullo’s departure left a hole in John Farrell’s coaching staff, but it’s unlikely to be filled by former Boston Red Sox captain Jason Varitek.

Lovullo left his job as Red Sox bench coach last week to become manager of the Arizona Diamondbacks, at which point many Boston fans wondered whether the organization would consider Varitek as a replacement. Varitek, who’s currently a special assistant to Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski, apparently is happy in his current position, though, so expect the club to look elsewhere — whether internally or externally — in its quest to find Lovullo’s successor.

Varitek spent his entire 15-year major league career with the Red Sox, winning two World Series titles and earning three All-Star selections before retiring after the 2011 season.
