Report: Bogar to interview for Astros job

9/18/2012

Red Sox bench coach Tim Bogar will interview for the Houston Astros' managerial opening this week, according to a report on WEEI.com.

The report said Bogar will meet with Astros executives in the Tampa Bay area at some point during the Red Sox' four-game series against the Rays.

The Astros fired Brad Mills, Red Sox bench coach under Terry Francona, last month with Houston holding a 39-82 record. Other reported candidates for the job include former manager Larry Bowa of MLB Network, Tampa Bay bench coach Dave Martinez and Nationals third base coach Bo Porter.
