David Cone and John Flaherty said they’ve been in contact with Yankees general manager Brian Cashman about the vacant managerial position and would be interested in taking the job now that Joe Girardi isn’t being brought back.

“I wouldn’t turn down an interview,” Cone said Wednesday night. “It’s a difficult job. It’s a prestigious job and I know there’s a process in place to find the right guy.”

Cone added he’s talked to Cashman “a couple of times” since Girardi’s departure and the GM “didn’t say no, as of yet,” to the idea of getting a chance to interview.

“I’m always around the Yankees,” Cone said at Joe Torre’s Safe at Home Foundation dinner at Cipriani’s downtown. “I have a good relationship with Brian. … I let him know I’ll do anything I can to help.”

Flaherty, like Cone, works as a broadcaster for the YES Network and said he hasn’t heard back from the Yankees, but thought he would let Cashman know he wanted to be considered.

“The thought of getting back on the field has been there since I retired in ‘06,” said Flaherty, adding he doesn’t expect to be a candidate. “I just wanted [Cashman] to know I’m at a time in my life where I would be interested in it.”
