Wallach to join Mattingly if not offered LA job

Bench coach considered candidate for Dodgers manager position, but has not interviewed yet

LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers bench coach Tim Wallach will join new Marlins manager Don Mattingly in Miami if he doesn't get the Dodgers manager job.

Wallach confirmed what Mattingly revealed in his introductory news conference on Monday. Wallach is considered one of the Dodgers' in-house candidates to replace Mattingly -- along with farm director Gabe Kapler and Ron Roenicke.

Rick Honeycutt, Mattingly's pitching coach in Los Angeles, is negotiating a multiyear deal to remain in that role with the Dodgers even before a new manager is announced.

The Dodgers have not confirmed any candidates as potential replacements for Mattingly, although University of Nebraska head coach Darin Erstad and San Diego Padres bench coach Dave Roberts are expected to be interviewed. Other names raised in speculation include Jason Varitek, Ron Gardenhire, Ron Washington, Dave Martinez and Rocco Baldelli.
