Boone won out over Hensley Meulens and Carlos Beltran. Boone has no managing experience of any sort. He has worked in recent years as an analyst and commentator on ESPN.

Bill Madden of the New York Daily News reports that the Yankees are expected to choose either Aaron Boone or Hensley Meulens as their next manager.

Madden hears that, out of the six candidates, Boone, Meulens and Carlos Beltran made the strongest impressions during the interview process. He doesn't expect Beltran to get the job but believes the recently-retired player "will be with the Yankees in some capacity next year." Boone doesn't have any coaching experience at any level but Madden writes that he would be a popular choice due to his "knowledge of the game... his communication skills and his overall likeability." Meulens' only managerial experience was with the Netherlands in two World Baseball Classics, but he's lauded for his communication skills and speaks five languages. Madden expects the Yankees to announce their new skipper early next week.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Friday that the team has completed the interview process as they seek their next manager.

There will be no second round of interviews, as Cashman is ready to make his recommendation to ownership. The six that interviewed for the job were Rob Thomson, Chris Woodward, Aaron Boone, Carlos Beltran, Hensley Meulens and Eric Wedge. Cashman also revealed that he reached out to Alex Rodriguez to get his thoughts on the search but that A-Rod never expressed interest in the job.

Sources tell Steve Phillips that the Yankees will interview Carlos Beltran for their managerial vacancy.

This comes on the heels of multiple reports indicating that the Yankees plan to expand their search beyond their initial five candidates. Upon his recent retirement, Beltran made no secret of his desire to manage in the majors someday, but it was unclear if he was going to get a formal interview with the Yankees. The club already interviewed Aaron Boone despite his lack of experience, so it makes sense that they would have an open mind on Beltran as they try to settle on their next skipper. He's already familiar with a number of players on the roster. Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic confirms Phillips' report and adds that Beltran's interview will take place Wednesday morning.
Nov 28 - 9:34 AM

Jim Bowden of SiriusXM reports that the Yankees will interview more than five candidates for manager.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic confirms the report. Yankees bench coach Rob Thomson, Blue Jays field coordinator Eric Wedge, Giants bench coach Hensley Meulens, ESPN analyst Aaron Boone, and Dodgers infield coach Chris Woodward have interviewed for the position thus far. Nobody has been formally ruled out for the position, but the Yankees aren't in a rush to make a decision. This is the only current managerial vacancy in MLB.
Nov 28 - 8:51 AM

Andrew Marchand of ESPN reports that the Yankees interviewed Dodgers' third base coach Chris Woodward for their managerial opening.

Woodward, who has no managerial experience at the big league level, joins Aaron Boone, Hensley Meulens, Eric Wedge and Rob Thomson as candidates who have already interviewed for the gig.
Nov 18 - 2:19 PM

MLB.com's Bryan Hoch reports that ESPN broadcaster Aaron Boone interviewed for the Yankees' manager job on Friday.

The Yankees are casting a wide net in their search to replace Joe Girardi, and that includes Boone, who has no coaching experience at any level. Joel Sherman of the New York Post wrote earlier this week of Boone that the Yankees "are intrigued if his charisma and passion can compensate for inexperience." Boone would seem to be a long shot to get the job, but no favorites appear to have emerged to this point.
Nov 17 - 1:35 PM

MLB.com's Bryan Hoch reports that the Yankees interviewed Giants bench coach Hensley Meulens for their managerial vacancy on Thursday.

The other known candidates for the job include Dodgers third base coach Chris Woodward, Yankees bench coach Rob Thomson, former Mariners and Indians manager Eric Wedge, and broadcaster Aaron Boone. Joe Girardi was let go shortly after the Yankees were eliminated from the American League Championship Series. There's no official timeline for this, but we'd expect the announcement of a hire by the end of next week.
Nov 16 - 1:38 PM

Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports that Dodgers third base coach Chris Woodward is a candidate for the Yankees' managerial vacancy.

The former MLB infielder joins a list which includes Yankees bench coach Rob Thomson, former Mariners and Indians manager Eric Wedge, broadcaster Aaron Boone, and Giants bench coach Hensley Meulens. Woodward has been the Dodgers' third base coach for the past two seasons, but he previously worked for the Mariners as their infield and first base coach. His managerial experience consists of a stint with Team New Zealand in the 2016 WBC. It's unclear how many other names are being considered, but the recently-retired Carlos Beltran has even thrown his hat in the ring.
Nov 14 - 8:37 PM

According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, the Yankees will interview Giants bench coach Hensley Meulens for manager on Friday.

We already knew that Meulens would interview with the Yankees, but now we have some specifics about the timing. The club has already interviewed bench coach Rob Thomson and former Mariners and Indians skipper Eric Wedge. ESPN broadcaster and former Yankees third baseman Aaron Boone is among the other upcoming candidates. Meulens, who played five seasons with the Yankees, was recently promoted from third base coach to bench coach with the Giants. He has been considered a potential long-term replacement for Bruce Bochy.
Nov 14 - 5:45 PM

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that Larry Rothschild will remain pitching coach with the Yankees.

The Yankees are in search of their next manager after parting ways with Joe Girardi, but they aren't making any changes at pitching coach. Rothschild just completed his seventh season as pitching coach for New York. It was an impressive one for the team's pitching staff, as they finished fifth in the majors with a 3.72 ERA.
Nov 13 - 10:46 PM

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Yankees reached out to former Tigers manager Brad Ausmus regarding their managerial vacancy but he told them he wants to take a year off.

Ausmus also turned down an opportunity to interview with the Mets. He did interview for the Red Sox' job that went to Alex Cora, although it appears that was a special circumstance since he's familiar with Dave Dombrowski and is from the New England area.
Nov 13 - 2:27 PM

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that ESPN broadcaster Aaron Boone and Giants bench coach Hensley Meulens will be the next candidates to interview for the Yankees' managerial vacancy.

So far the Yankees have interviewed bench coach Rob Thomson and former Mariners and Indians skipper Eric Wedge for their manager job. Meulens was recently promoted from hitting coach to bench coach with the Giants and has interviewed for managerial posts in the past. Boone has never coached or managed anywhere, but Sherman writes that the Yankees "are intrigued if his charisma and passion can compensate for inexperience."
Nov 13 - 1:58 PM

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Athletics denied the Yankees' request to interview manager Bob Melvin.

Melvin is under contract with the A’s through 2019, so it's not all that surprising that they refused to let him interview for the same position in another organization. General manager Brian Cashman doesn't plan to conduct any interviews this week while he's at the GM Meetings.
Nov 13 - 1:13 PM

Yankees' general manager Brian Cashman said Sunday that there will be no managerial interviews held over the next three days while he attends the general manager meetings.

The next interview for the Yankees' managerial gig is scheduled for Thursday, though Cashman declined to identify who it's with. Eric Wedge interviewed for the gig on Thursday and Aaron Boone has been linked as a possible candidate for the position.
