Former Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell might be coming to airwaves near you.
Farrell, who was fired by the Red Sox following the 2017 season, reportedly signed a deal Monday with The Montag Group, a broadcasting talent agency.
Farrell has been relatively quiet since his dismissal from Boston, but he did do a spot on MLB Network’s Hot Stove Show last Wednesday.
Granted, signing with the group doesn’t necessarily lock him into anything. Terry Francona is a prime example, as noted by The Boston Globe. Francona joined ESPN in 2012 after being fired by the Red Sox, but joined the Cleveland Indians as their manager following that season. So Farrell conceivably could join a network for a period of time but still return to coaching down the road.
The ex-Red Sox skipper has had his name tossed around with a few managerial openings, including the Philadelphia Phillies and Washington Nationals, but both teams made other hires.
