DETROIT (AP) - Los Angeles Dodgers third base coach Tim Wallach has interviewed for the Detroit Tigers' managerial opening.
Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski confirmed Saturday that Wallach and Lloyd McClendon have both interviewed for the job. McClendon is Detroit's hitting coach.
The Tigers have won three straight AL Central titles, but they need a new manager after Jim Leyland stepped down following eight seasons at the helm.
Wallach managed the Dodgers' Triple-A affiliate in Albuquerque in 2009 and 2010.
McClendon has been a member of Detroit's staff ever since Leyland took over, and he also has managerial experience in the majors. He managed the Pittsburgh Pirates from 2001-05.
