AP sources: Girardi interviewed in Rangers manager search

World Series champion Joe Girardi has been interviewed by the Texas Rangers in their search for a new manager.

People familiar with the details said the Rangers interviewed Girardi, the former New York Yankees and Florida Marlins manager, on Friday in Arlington. The team is making no public comments about the first round of interviews as it looks to replace fired manager Jeff Banister.

Girardi managed the Yankees to a World Series title in 2009, their 27th overall and only one since 2000. He was New York's manager for 10 seasons, but his contract wasn't renewed after the Yankees lost in the ALCS last October.

In his only season managing the Marlins in 2006, the former big league catcher was the NL manager of the year after a 78-84 record with the team that had the lowest payroll in the majors.
