BOSTON (AP) - The Boston Red Sox have interviewed Philadelphia Phillies bench coach Pete Mackanin for their vacant managerial job.

Mackanin is meeting with the media at Fenway Park on Monday night.

The Red Sox are also scheduled to talk to Milwaukee Brewers hitting coach Dale Sveum this week.

Mackanin is looking to replace Terry Francona, who parted ways with the team after its unprecedented September collapse. Mackanin also spent time in the Expos, Pirates, Reds and Yankees systems.

He was an interim manager with the Reds in 2007 and the Pirates in 2005, going 53-53 in the two temporary gigs. He is also 917-849 in 13 years as a minor league manager.

Also Monday, the Red Sox declined contract options on relievers Dan Wheeler and Scott Atchison.
