Former Red Sox manager John Farrell reportedly wants another crack at a big league managing job.

Even if it means leaving his lobstering career on the North Shore.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reported Tuesday that Farrell is interested in getting back in the dugout. He has not managed since being fired by the Red Sox at the end of the 2017 season, but has interviewed for a number of jobs.

Farrell was one of the candidates for the Reds opening last offseason, a job that eventually went to David Bell. The Phillies and Nationals also interviewed Farrell in late 2017 for their managerial openings, but ultimately went with Gabe Kapler and Dave Martinez respectively instead of Farrell.

It is unclear if there would be any interest in Farrell this year.

Farrell managed the Red Sox to the 2013 World Series title went 432-378 in five years at the helm in Boston.
