Jason Giambi will interview for the Colorado Rockies vacant managerial job, reports The Denver Post.
The 41-year-old Giambi underwent hernia surgery last week to allow him the option to continue to play in 2013. But he says he will not play if he gets the job.
Giambi has never coached at any level and only has worked with Rockies players on their hitting.
The Rockies other options for the job include bench coach Tom Runnells, Dan O'Dowd assistant Vinny Castilla, Dodgers third-base coach Tim Wallach, Sandy Alomar Jr, Padres assistant Brad Ausmus and Rays assistant Dave Martinez.

The Colorado Rockies are one of only two teams currently searching for their next manager, the Boston Red Sox are the other. The Rockies are in no hurry to hire a manager as they interviewed bench coach Tom Runnells for two full days this week. The club will conclude its in-house interviews with Jason Giambi (yes, that Jason Giambi) before going outside the organization for possible candidates.
If the Colorado Rockies step outside the box -- and perhaps outside the warning track -- and hire Jason Giambi as their manager, they can lay claim to having the most decorated skipper in baseball, at least when it comes to body art.
And imagine the motivational techniques Giambi, a 40-year-old pinch hitter who will interview for the job, might be able to impart on a struggling...

I promise that's the last mention of football here.
