Kendall Rogers reported this morning that Matt Hobbs is in New York today interviewing for the Yankees’ pitching coach position. Kendall said the Yankees interviewed Michigan’s pitching coach yesterday.
This is the second offseason in a row that Hobbs has received interest from the pros. Dave Van Horn said earlier this year that Hobbs had turned down an offer with a team - the Rangers, I think - before Arkansas hired him last year. That was not as the big-league pitching coach, but as the minor league coordinator, if I remember correctly.
I tried to find my notes but couldn’t, so this is from memory, but I had a short conversation with Hobbs early on at Arkansas about there being some pro interest in him. Essentially he told me that down the road it might be something that interested him, but last year wasn’t the right time.
