Matt Williams reportedly to interview for Toronto manager position

Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE

Arizona third-base coach Matt Williams will reportedly interview for the open manager job in Toronto.

Matt Williams spent the last three seasons on the Arizona Diamondbacks' coaching staff, but he may not make it to a fourth. Arizona reportedly granted Toronto permission to interview Williams for the Blue Jays' open manager position.

Williams served as the Diamondbacks third-base coach the last two seasons after joining the Arizona coaching staff as the first-base coach in 2010. He is currently managing in the Arizona Fall League and interviewed for the Colorado Rockies open manager position on Monday.

Toronto was forced to search for a new manager after John Farrell left the Blue Jays to take over as manager of the Boston Red Sox. The 46-year-old Williams is one of several reported candidates in Toronto, joining Sandy Alomar Jr., DeMarlo Hale, Tim Wallach and others. Williams is one of four finalists for the Rockies' manager position.

Williams played six of his 17 Major League seasons in Arizona and also served as a Diamondbacks broadcaster from 2005-09.
