Girardi New Yankee’s Manager

by

The Yankees officially offered their managerial job to Joe Girardi on Monday morning and he is expected to accept it, a source has told 1050 ESPN New York’s Andrew Marchand.

“The Yankees have offered Joe the opportunity to become their next manager. Discussions are ongoing.” Steve Mandell, Girardi’s agent, said.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman told Don Mattingly and Tony Pena that they will not be getting the job.

Mattingly will not accept a position on the Yankees coaching staff, Marchand and ESPN The Magazine’s Buster Olney are reporting.

Hank Steinbrenner, one of owner George Steinbrenner’s sons, said Monday he wasn’t sure when an announcement would be made. He added there would be more discussions during the day concerning the candidates.

“These guys were put through the ringer,” he said from Tampa, Fla. “I think we’re ready to make an informed decision.”
