According to Rob Biertempfel, the Pirates interviewed former Toronto Blue Jays manager Carlos Tosca for John Russell's vacant position. Tosca managed the Jays from 2002-2004 with a perfectly even 191-191 record and three third place finishes. He's been a coach with the Marlins for the last four seasons and was recently hired by Fredi Gonzalez to coach for the Braves.
UPDATE by Charlie: Tosca has never played professional baseball, but he's been coaching or managing professionally since 1978, so he has a ton of experience.
