Add one more names to the Marlins’ managerial hiring mix: Phil Nevin.

Nevin interviewed Wednesday for the position.

That brings to four the number of known candidates to interview for the job, which became open when Dan Jennings returned to the front office.

Manny Acta, Bo Porter and Larry Bowa have also interviewed.

Nevin is a former major league player, spending 12 seasons with seven different teams.

Nevin has been managing in the minors since 2008, most recently with the Arizona Diamondbacks Triple A affiliate in Reno.

The hiring process could extend through the playoffs and World Series as the Marlins await to see if other candidates become available.

One name that is often rumored is Dodgers manager Don Mattingly.
