Jack Curry of YES Network reported yesterday that the Yankees interviewed David Cone for their pitching coach vacancy last week.

Last week it was reported that the Yankees were interviewing a couple of college coaches -- University of Arkansas pitching coach Matt Hobbs and University of Michigan pitching coach Chris Fetter -- about succeeding Larry Rothschild as the club’s pitching coach.
