Source: Dan Duquette to interview Friday
The Orioles will be bringing in former Boston Red Sox and Montreal Expos general manager Dan Duquette to interview for their top executive spot, according to an industry source.
Duquette, who will be the sixth candidate interviewed, is expected to meet with the club’s search committee on Friday.
Once considered one of the best and brightest – and brashest – executives in baseball, Duquette, 53, had success with both the Expos, whom he led from 1991 to 1994, and the Red Sox, whom he was with from 1994 until 2002.
Duquette, the cousin of former Orioles executive Jim Duquette, was dismissed by the Red Sox after an ownership change in 2002. He has worked with various minor league teams since and runs the Dan Duquette Sports Academy in Hinsdale, Mass.
The Orioles have interviewed five others for the job, including Philadelphia Phillies assistant general manager Scott Proefrock on Thursday.
