Mark Gonzalez of the Chicago Tribune reports that White Sox bench coach Joey Cora will interview for the Brewers’ managerial opening “soon.”
Gonzalez notes that Cora “is believed to be a long shot” for the Milwaukee job and has interviewed for past managerial openings in Pittsburgh and Seattle.
Prior to serving as Ozzie Guillen’s right-hand man in Chicago for seven seasons Cora managed in the minors for the Mets and Expos, and of course he played 11 seasons in the majors for the Mariners, White Sox, Indians, and Padres.
Milwaukee fired Ken Macha after he went 80-82 and 77-85 in two seasons on the job.
