Former Houston Astros broadcaster Brett Dolan interviewed with the Pirates last week for their open radio/TV job, sources confirmed to the Tribune-Review.

Dolan was the Astros' play-by-play man from 2006 to 2012. He also broadcast games for the Triple-A Iowa Cubs (1998-2000) and Triple-A Tucson Sidewinders (2000-06). Since leaving the Astros, Dolan has covered college basketball and football for ESPN and Comcast SportsNet Houston.

There are at least three other candidates who have interviewed for the Pirates' position. Joe Block, who's with the Milwaukee Brewers, and ESPN/SEC Network announcer Tom Hart already have been in. Andy Masur, who formerly worked for the Chicago Cubs and San Diego Padres, is scheduled to meet with Pirates execs this week.

The Pirates, who are seeking a replacement for Tim Neverett as their No. 2 radio/TV voice, likely will make a decision by next week.
