The Miami Marlins recently interviewed Atlanta Braves third-base coach Bo Porter for the team's manager job according to a report by CBS Sports' Jon Heyman. Porter previously served as third-base coach for the Marlins from 2007-2009 during Fredi Gonzalez's tenure as head coach.

Porter, who's served as the Braves' third-base coach, is known to Marlins people, including Loria, from his time as third base coach with the Marlins from 2007-09. Porter, who also has coached for the Nationals and Diamondbacks, managed nearly two years in Houston.

Porter amassed a 110-190 record in his two years with the Astros during the early stages of their rebuild. He was fired by the Astros in September of 2014 and was quickly hired by the Braves as the team's third base coach.

The Marlins have also reportedly interviewed Manny Acta in what is rumored to be an extensive search. Current manager Dan Jennings is expected to return to the team's front office at the end of the season.
