Marlins Hire Don Mattingly as new manager

Oct 29, 2015 6:15 PM

MIAMI (AP) - A person familiar with the situation says Don Mattingly has been hired as manager of the Miami Marlins less than a week after he parted with the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Thursday because the decision hasn't been publicly confirmed. The announcement might not come until after the World Series.

Mattingly interviewed Monday with the Marlins. He went 446-363 in five years with the Dodgers and won the NL West the past three years. But the Dodgers have not reached the World Series since winning the title in 1988.

In Miami, Mattingly succeeds Dan Jennings, who made the unusual move from general manager to manager in May.
