White Sox Interview Fiery Former Manager For Opening

We could see this one coming a mile away. The Chicago White Sox, after having managerial retread Tony La Russa step down after a disastrous season and health problems, have now interviewed another of their former managers, Ozzie Guillen, for their job opening. 

In fact, as reported by ESPN's Spanish language reporter Enrique Rojas, the former fiery manager has already been called back for a second interview for the manager's position. 

It was earlier in October, while the search was in its earlier stages, that Guillen pronounced on NBC Sports Chicago, "Let me be cocky, nobody in baseball knows this ballclub better than Ozzie Guillén." 

The 58-year-old led the White Sox from 2004-2011, and took them to their first World Series victory in nearly a century, in 2005. 

But his infamous temper sometimes got in the way, including publicly trashing other managers, players, umpires, fans and reporters, to spectacular ejections and other histrionics. It eventually led to him leaving the South Side after 2011 and being fired one year later by the Miami Marlins in 2012. 

One thing you can be sure of if Guillen is named the White Sox skipper again—he won't be caught on camera falling asleep in the dugout, like the outgoing La Russa.
