The San Francisco Giants could potentially turn to a familiar face to replace the soon-to-be retired Bruce Bochy as manager.

According to this report from Jon Heyman of MLB Network, Los Angeles Dodgers bench coach Bob Geren is a candidate for the job.

Geren, 58, has served in his current role under Dave Roberts since 2016. He was the Oakland Athletics manager from 2007-11, posting a combined 334-376 record.

As Heyman notes, Geren has a relationship with Giants President Farhan Zaidi dating back to their days together with the A’s and Dodgers.
