Coonelly: We've Picked our Manager

The Bucs know who they want, the Trib reports:

"We have identified the individual who we believe will be the next manager," team president Frank Coonelly said this morning.

Coonelly said he expects to make an official announcement Monday. The Pirates, though, have not notified the five finalists about which one has gotten the job. That could happen Saturday night or Sunday morning when general manager Neal Huntington returns from an out-of-town trip. Huntington is away on a personal matter.

The five finalists are Class AAA Indianapolis manager Trent Jewett, Cleveland third base coach Joel Skinner, Class AAA Lehigh Valley manager John Russell, Los Angeles Dodgers bench coach Dave Jauss and Chicago White Sox bench coach Joey Cora.

Thanks to Thunder.
