Rob Thomson, who had been with the Yankees for almost three decades and most recently was Joe Girardi's bench coach, is expected to move to the Philadelphia Phillies to be Gabe Kapler's bench coach, sources said.
The New York Yankees have selected former star player Aaron Boone to replace Joe Girardi as manager, USA media reported on Friday.
Boone is a smart, personable, 44-year-old former Yankees third baseman who hit one of the biggest home runs in franchise history.
The Yankees have reportedly hired postseason hero and current ESPN analyst Aaron Boone as their new manager, reports ESPN's Buster Olney.
Personally, if the Yankees were going to pick a manager with no experience, I would have preferred Carlos Beltran. "But I would also say in a way, I've been preparing for this job for my entire life". He said he chose to stop the interviewing process after meeting with six candidates and that he would make a recommendation to ownership and they could go from there. Had the Yankees not rallied to win that ALDS, it would have gone done as one of the biggest managerial blunders in NY history.
Boone, 44, is best known for his Game 7-winning home run in the 2003 American League Championship Series that extended the Boston Red Sox's curse and sent the Yankees to the World Series. His father, Bob, was a four-time All-Star catcher from 1972-90, then managed Kansas City from 1995-97 and Cincinnati from 2001-03.
"I know what I would be signing up for", he said. "Especially the last few years, I find myself managing games all the time and thinking about strategies and how I would handle different situations". But Aaron Boone is getting the New York Yankees managing job as his first time job.
The Yankees' search for a manager has taken more than a month.
This story was not subject to the approval of Major League Baseball or its clubs.
Boone had never interviewed previously for a manager opening.
The Daily News said that the Yankees were looking for "a strong communicator who could be open-minded to new ideas - including analytics and performance-science".
It is clear, based on the candidates who interviewed and the decision to part ways with Girardi, that Cashman wants a bigger influence over the man calling the shots in the Yankees dugout.
He added, "Certainly the expectations now will be ramped up even more after such a successful season and when you look at the roster that we're going to potentially have out there". "He never expressed interest in any way, shape or form in it".
