Ozzie Guillen was on the radio today, appearing as a guest on ESPN-1000 in Chicago, and made it very clear that he wants to get back into managing as soon as possible.
“I’m a free agent,” Guillen said, via Michael C. Wright of ESPN Chicago. “I’d like to be back in the game. I’m waiting to see what things [are] going on out there.”
Guillen was asked if he’d like to be the Cubs’ manager and said yes, but then backtracked a bit because he didn’t want to “backstab” current manager Dale Sveum. “There’s 28 teams out there. [If] they need a manager, I’m available.”
Guillen lasted just one season with the Marlins after eight seasons with the White Sox, getting fired by Miami despite having three years and $7.5 million remaining on his contract.
