After finishing his playing career, Paul O’Neill returned to the New York Yankees as a broadcaster. Now, he is interested in another possible homecoming with the other team he played for, the Cincinnati Reds.
But, this time, it would be as the team’s manager.
“I would love to sit down and find out what their thoughts are,” O’Neill told ESPN New York on Wednesday evening. “There are basically two organizations in my life, the Reds and the Yankees. Anytime to live in the city, you understand and see what happens in an organization.
While a game analyst for YES, the Yankees’ network, O’Neill, 50, still lives with his family in Cincinnati.
“It is not a rebuilding situation,” O’Neill said. “They are a very, very good team. I think anybody would be interested in taking a good team and winning a World Series.”
Earlier Wednesday, on ESPN New York 98.7 FM, Michael Kay reported on his radio show that Reds owner, Bob Castellini, had reached out to O’Neill about being the manager of the team.
