Miami Marlins fire manager Ozzie Guillen
The Miami Marlins have fired manager Ozzie Guillen after one season.
Here’s the statement from Marlins baseball operations president Larry Beinfest:
“After careful consideration following the disappointment of the 2012 season, we decided to dismiss Ozzie,” said Beinfest. “Our managerial search begins immediately and our hope is that a new manager, along with roster improvements, will restore a winning culture.”
Guillen’s future was in doubt after his role in several controversial incidents including a pro-Fidel Castro comment and the team’s disappointing performance.
