Tim Wallach, currently the third base coach for the Los Angeles Dodgers, has been contacted by the Boston Red Sox regarding the team's managerial vacancy. Wallach was "pleasantly surprised" about being contacted and will interview with the team next week, according to MLB.com's Ian Browne.

Wallach, 55, is a former Major Leaguer, having played with the Montreal Expos (now the Washington Nationals), Dodgers and California Angels. Wallach's playing career lasted from 1980 to 1996, and he posted a career .257 batting average with 260 home runs and 1,125 RBI. Wallach is a five-time All-Star and three-time Gold Glove award winner.

Wallach joined the Dodgers as a hitting coach in 2004 and 2005 and managed the Dodgers' Triple-A affiliate, the Albuquerque Isotopes, and led the team to a franchise record 80 wins and was named the Pacific Coast League Manager of the Year. Wallach re-joined the Dodgers in 2010, when he was named third base coach.

The Red Sox are searching for a replacement for Bobby Valentine, who they fired at the end of the 2012 regular season after going 69-93 and missing the playoffs by 24 games in one season.
