John Gibbons (born June 8, 1962 in Great Falls, Montana) is the current manager of the Toronto Blue Jays in Major League Baseball.
Initially hired by the Blue Jays in 2002 as a bullpen catcher, Gibbons worked his way up to first base coach in the same year, and eventually replaced Carlos Tosca as interim manager after Tosca was fired in August 2004.
The Blue Jays went 20-30 with Gibbons as manager. During the remainder of the season, it was not unusual to see the Blue Jays fielding as many as 6 rookies per game. Gibbons has been noted to refer to himself as a "players' coach" because of the way he encourages and listens to comments from his team.
At the end of the 2004 regular season, Gibbons was given a 1-year contract as the manager for the 2005 season. This contract was extended for three seasons just a week into the 2005 season. Gibbons went on to lead the Jays to an 80-82 record in his first full season as a big league manager.
After being selected by the New York Mets with the 24th pick of the 1980 amateur draft, Gibbons had only a brief 18-game major league playing career as a catcher with the Mets in 1984 and 1986.
