SAN DIEGO (AP) - The Oakland A's have squashed speculation that assistant general manager David Forst is in the mix to become the next general manager of the San Diego Padres.

The A's said in a statement e-mailed exclusively to The Associated Press that Forst has not interviewed for the job, nor has anyone asked for permission to interview him.

The Padres fired Kevin Towers last weekend, ending his 14-year run as GM.

Jeff Moorad, the Padres' vice chairman and CEO, has declined to comment on the search other than to say that he's interviewed three candidates and probably will interview two more.
