Joe Girardi gets 'very generous' contract offer from Yankees, per reports

A contract offer from the Yankees would reportedly make Joe Girardi the second-highest paid manager in the MLB.

The New York Yankees have given Joe Girardi a "very generous" contract offer that would make him the second-highest paid manager in the MLB, according to multiple reports, including ones from Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News and Andrew Marchand of ESPN New York.

Girardi, 48, was hired by the Yankees in October 2007 and received a three-year deal worth $7.5 million. At the conclusion of the deal, he signed another three-year deal, this time worth $9 million, that is set to expire at the end of the month.

Los Angeles Angels manager Mike Scioscia is currently the highest paid manager with an annual salary that nets him just over $5 million annually.

The Yankees missed the postseason in 2013, compiling 85 wins, the fewest for the team in a full season since 1992. The team missed the playoffs for just the second time in the past 19 seasons.
