Dodgers third base coach Tim Wallach has been contacted by the Red Sox to interview for their managing job, a team source confirmed to the Globe. The team’s intention to interview Wallach was first reported by the Boston Herald.

Wallach was a three-time Gold Glover and five-time All-Star at third base for the Montreal Expos, hitting .257 with 260 homers for his career. He was the Dodgers’ hitting coach under Jim Tracy and Grady Little.

Wallach is expected to interview with the Sox next week.
