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.
