Rangers pitching coach Mike Maddux has withdrawn from consideration from the Red Sox manager's job, the Red Sox announced. He was scheduled to interview on Tuesday.

Maddux was reportedly scheduled to interview with the Cubs this week, as well, and could be the favorite to land that job. That perception is unlikely to change after this development.

The Red Sox have also interviewed Phillies bench coach Pete Mackanin and Brewers hitting coach Dale Sveum. The Cubs have already interviewed Mackanin and were scheduled to interview Sveum on Monday.

The Red Sox are also scheduled to interview Indians bench coach Sandy Alomar Jr., as well.
