The Reds wrapped up the initial round of interviews for the manager's job Sunday when interim manager Dave Miley met with club officials.
Miley was the last of four finalists to interview. Miley has been considered the leading candidate for the permanent job since he took over July 28 from the fired Bob Boone. Miley has been in the Reds organization 24 years and has over 1,100 wins in the minors.
The club also interviewed former Chicago White Sox manager Jerry Manuel, Tampa Bay bench coach John McLaren and Pittsburgh player development director Brian Graham.
"We're going to take a step back and digest what we've heard, and we're going to re-visit it (today)," Reds general manager Dan O'Brien said. "There's a chance it will happen before Thanksgiving."
O'Brien said "a candidate or two" may have second interviews.
