Miami Marlins will interview Larry Bowa for managerial job

The Phillies bench coach could prove to be an intriguing candidate.

Larry Bowa has emerged as a candidate to become the next Marlins manager.

Bowa ended the season as the Phillies' bench coach, and according to CSN Philly's Jim Salisbury, Philadelphia has given the Marlins permission to interview Bowa for their managerial opening.

Miami is known to be seeking an experienced candidate and Bowa has a notable amount of major league experience having managed the Phillies and Padres earlier in his career. Bowa joins Manny Acta and Bo Porter as candidates publicly known to have interviewed for the job.

Update -- According to USA Today's Bob Nightengale, Jennings' title is unknown, but there remains a good chance Mike Berger is named the Marlins' GM.

While the Marlins will consider Bowa,'s Joe Frisaro notes Dan Jennings is expected to return to the club's front office as the general manager. Jennings was asked to manage the team after Mike Redmond was dismissed. Since he stepped into the dugout, other Marlins executives have reportedly gained power, leading some to question whether Jennings would be welcomed back at the end of the season.
