What does the future hold for former Phillies skipper Charlie Manuel?

Perhaps another a job in Philadelphia.

Manuel joined Jeff Joyce and his former closer, Brad Lidge, on Inside Pitch on MLB Network Radio Monday and discussed his future in baseball.

They did offer me a job mostly doing some PR work and also I would be working with some hitters and prospects and things like that. Evidently they said I would be part of giving some advice and suggestions to Ruben [Amaro Jr.], and I haven’t really come to a decision yet. I am still looking around and want to see if I have any options or things like that, but I still want to stay in the game. Of course, I still want to manage, I said that from the start.

The Phillies relieved Manuel of his managerial duties on Aug. 16, with Philadelphia 53-67 through their first 120 games. He spent nine years in Philadelphia, leading his teams to five straight NL East titles, a World Series championship in 2008 and an NL pennant in 2009. Manuel finished with a record of 1,416-780.

Ryne Sandberg was named Philadelphia’s manager on Sept. 22 after taking over in an interim role for Manuel.
