Jerry Manuel reportedly interviewed with the Rockies.

Jerry Manuel has interviewed for the vacant Colorado Rockies manager's position, the Denver Post reports.

Manuel managed the Mets from midway through the 2008 season through 2010, compiling a 204-213 record. He was dismissed along with general manager Omar Minaya after that season.

The newspaper also lists Walt Weiss, Jason Giambi, Pete Mackanin, Matt Williams and Ron Wotus as well as "possibly" Sandy Alomar Jr. and Brad Ausmus as candidates.

Meanwhile, Rick Peterson reportedly is interviewing for the Red Sox's pitching coach gig.
