So much so the former New York Yankees skipper is stepping down as USA men's baseball team's manager.

One of his former Yankees teammates, Scott Brosius, will step in to lead the team.

According to ESPN, Girardi decided Wednesday to not be at the helm for Team USA so he can focus on getting back into the Major League Baseball. There are concerns that Girardi will be hard for a general manager to work with, but Mike Puma of the New York Post reports that Girardi wants the job "badly enough" to allay some of those concerns.

Among the clubs now looking for a manager are the Chicago Cubs, a team with whom Girardi spent seven seasons as a player over two stints.

He became bench boss of the New York Yankees - the team with whom Girardi won three World Series - in 2008. The top two teams from that group and two others being played in South Korea and Chinese Taipei will move on to a six-team "super round" in Japan Nov. 11-17.

The U.S. will train from October 21-28 at the Kansas City Royals' complex in Surprise, Arizona, then start qualifying from November 2-4 at Guadalajara, Mexico, as part of a group that includes the Dominican Republic, Mexico and the Netherlands.

Players on 40-man rosters are not eligible to play for the U.S.in qualifiers. The victor of that group advances to the six-nation Olympic field, which already includes host Japan and Israel, and the second- and third-place teams advance to another qualifying event.

The U.S. roster announced last week includes some high-end Major League Baseball prospects led by outfielders Jo Adell (Angels) and Drew Waters (Braves) and power-hitting infielders Bobby Dalbec (Red Sox) and Andrew Vaughn (White Sox). The top Premier12 finisher from the Americas and Asia/Oceania also will earn spots in the field, with the remaining three to be filled out in regional tournaments next spring.
