Marlins, Mattingly parting ways after this season
The Miami Marlins and Don Mattingly mutually agreed this is his last season as the team's manager, the club announced Sunday.
Marlins general manager Kim Ng will lead the search for a new skipper with team owner Bruce Sherman involved in the process, according to the Miami Herald's Jordan McPherson and Craig Mish.
"Over the course of our recent conversations with Don, we both agreed not to pursue a new contract for the 2023 season and that the time is right for a new voice to lead our clubhouse," Sherman said in a statement.
Mattingly has posted a 437-583 record with the Marlins over seven seasons since being hired in October 2015. His 437 wins are the most in franchise history. The club's NLDS appearance during the 2020 pandemic-shortened campaign was the only time Miami made the postseason during his tenure.
The 61-year-old felt the time was right to take a break, but he isn't retiring, reports Jon Heyman of MLB Network.
