The Detroit Tigers continue their search for a new manager, and their upcoming interviews include former catcher and current San Diego Padres executive Brad Ausmus and Padres bench coach Rick Renteria, according to CBSSports.com.

Ausmus, now 44 and a special assistant to baseball operations, spent three seasons of his 18-year career in Detroit. He has no managing or coaching experience but has been hailed as a good fit for the job because of his history with the Tigers and his lengthy time in the majors. He also interviewed to be manager of the Washington Nationals but did not get the position.

Renteria, 51, managed Team Mexico in this year’s World Baseball Classic, and he also has minor league managing experience. Renteria is also up for jobs with the Chicago Cubs and Seattle Mariners. He played five seasons in the majors.

The Tigers have also interviewed their hitting coach Lloyd McClendon, who also interviewed for the Mariners job, and Los Angeles Dodgers third base coach Tim Wallach. McClendon, who played eight years in the big leagues, managed the Pittsburgh Pirates from 2001 to 2005. Wallach played in the majors for 17 years and has some minor league managing experience.
