"I haven't had any conversations about [my contract] with anyone, so we'll see," Boone said after the Yankees' 6—2 loss. "I love being here. I love going to work with this group of players."

Since the team's postseason exit, the franchise has made a number of changes to Boone's staff. The organization reportedly did not renew the contracts of hitting coach Marcus Thames and third-base coach Phil Nevin. The Yankees also are expected to not renew the deal of assistant hitting coach P.J. Pilittere, per multiple reports.

General manager Brian Cashman has said that he had hoped Boone would have a decade-long run as the franchise's manager, similar to that of Joe Torre and Joe Girardi, Boone's two immediate predecessors.

Unlike Torre and Giradi, however, Boone failed to win a World Series early in his tenure.

Boone was hired as the Yankees' manager in December 2017, beating out a number of candidates including former Indians and Mariners manager Eric Wedge and former All-Star Carlos Beltran.

He had played in the major leagues from 1997–2009, with an 11th-inning home run off Boston's Tim Wakefield in Game 7 of the 2003 AL Championship Series making him a postseason hero.

Before taking on the managerial role with the franchise, Boone was an analyst at ESPN.
