Former Athletic Jason Giambi reportedly set to interview with Rockies for manager position

Jake Roth-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Jason Giambi could become the next manager of the Rockies.

As the Colorado Rockies begin their search for the next manager of the ball club, former Oakland Athletics slugger Jason Giambi could become a serious candidate.

According to a report from the Denver Post, Giambi, who has been with the Rockies as a part-time player since 2009, is expected to interview with the club at a date to be determined. He has never coached at any level, nor does he have managerial experience. Colorado has not shown a real sense of urgency to find their ideal candidate, and it is unclear if the club has tabbed a favorite to land the manager's job for 2013 and beyond.

Bench coach Tom Runnells interviewed with the team this past week. Triple-A manager Stu Cole is also considered to be a candidate, although he is yet to have any direct conversations about the job. Former Rockies All-Star Vinny Castilla currently holds a spot in Colorado's front office and could also be a fit.

Former manager Jim Tracy resigned on Oct. 7.
