Glenn Edward Hoffman (born July 7, 1958) is a former shortstop in Major League Baseball and the current third base coach for the San Diego Padres. Previously, in 1998 he took over the managerial position for the Los Angeles Dodgers final half of the season when Bill Russell was fired along with general manager Fred Claire.
Hoffman was selected by the Boston Red Sox in the second round of the 1976 draft, and played primarily at shortstop for the Sox from 1980 to 1987, when he was traded to the Dodgers. In 1988, he signed as a free agent with the Red Sox, but he spent the entire season in the minor leagues. In 1989, he signed with the California Angels, but was limited to 48 games.
After his playing career he began coaching. He spent several years as a Manager in the Dodgers farm system, and in 1998 he was the manager of the Dodgers AAA team when the team fired major league manager Bill Russell in midseason. The Dodgers hired him to be the team's interim manager for the remainder of the season.
Glenn Hoffman is the older brother of closer Trevor Hoffman who spent most of his career with the San Diego Padres.
