Yankees Rumors: ESPN Analyst Aaron Boone Now A Candidate In New York's Managerial Search

The New York Yankees have been looking for a new manager since they mutually agreed to part ways with Joe Girardi following their exit in the ALCS, and the rumor mill has been churning ever since.

A number of candidates emerged as serious contenders to replace Girardi, namely Jerry Hairston Jr., Triple-A manager Al Pedrique, former Phillies manager Pete Mackanin, and former Tigers manager Brad Ausmus, and now another name as been added to the list.

According to ESPN's Buster Olney, current ESPN analyst Aaron Boone is being considered for the job.

Aaron Boone, who hit one of the most famous homers in New York Yankees history and has served as an analyst on ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball the past two years, is among the candidates to be the Yankees' next manager, according to sources. An interview has not yet been scheduled.

The fact that Boone hasn't been interviewed yet isn't surprising. Bench coach Rob Thomson is the only candidate to do so at this time.

Boone played 54 games for the Yankees in the 2003 season, who acquired him from the Cincinnati Reds prior to the trade deadline, and helped them make the World Series. 

In total, Boone played 12 seasons in the majors and retired in 2009. He joined ESPN in 2010.
