Jim Leyland Is Leaving The Detroit Tigers
Jim Leyland has been manager of the Detroit Tigers since 2006. He won’t return next year.
Jim Leyland won’t return as manager of the Detroit Tigers next season, a decision the team will announce in a Monday morning news conference, according to multiple reports.
Leyland, 68, told the team he was stepping down after the Tigers’ Game 6 loss to the Boston Red Sox in the AL Championship Series, Fox Sports reported.
Leyland was managing the Tigers under a one-year contract extension he signed a year ago, after Detroit was swept by the San Francisco Giants in the World Series.
Leyland managed 2012 on a one-year deal as well.
The omission of the word “retirement” from the 68-year-old’s mouth is a bit surprising, but this news is in its early stages. This could have been a Leyland-only decision as the report suggests, or there could have been some pressure from above. Who knows?
Regardless, we’ll keep you posted.
