Royals bench coach John Gibbons was a candidate for the Pirates open manager job and even interviewed for it a few weeks ago.
According to Bob Dutton of the KC Star, he's removed his name from consideration.
John Gibbons withdraws as candidate to become Pittsburgh's next manager. Will remain as Royals' bench coach.
Good news for the Royals. It's always nice to have a coach that's desired by others.
