Bruce Bochy has been contacted by several clubs including the San Diego Padres, who even went as far as offering him a job to bring him back as manager, reports USA Today's Bob Nightengale. 

However, Bochy says he will take next year off before deciding whether or not he wants to return to the dugout in 2021. Nightengale adds Bochy will serve as a special assistant to the San Francisco Giants next season. 

Bochy managed San Francisco from 2007 to 2019, winning three World Series championships with the club in 2010, 2012 and 2014. Before that, he served as Padres skipper from 1995 to 2006 highlighted by a National League pennant in 1998. 

The Padres parted ways with manager Andy Green following their ninth losing season in a row. San Diego has not made the playoffs since 2006, when they lost in four games in the NLDS.
