Report: Don Mattingly to interview with Marlins on Monday

Monday October 26th, 2015

Don Mattingly will interview for the Miami Marlins’ managerial position on Monday, reports’s Joe Frisaro.

Miami announced at the end of the season that interim manager Dan Jennings would not return as skipper in 2016, leaving the team with a vacancy at the position. Jennings was reportedly asked to return to his original role as the team's general manager, but a conflicting report stated that Jennings’s role with the Marlins was still uncertain.

Mattingly and the Los Angeles Dodgers parted ways after the team was eliminated from the playoffs by the eventual National League champion New York Mets. The decision was reported to be mutual.

“We all felt that a fresh start would be good for both the organization and me,” Mattingly said in a statement.

The Miami Herald previously reported that Mattingly and the Marlins had mutual interest in working together. Miami has already interviewed a number of other candidates for the job, including Larry Bowa, Manny Acta and Alex Cora.

Mattingly compiled a 446–363 record in five seasons as the Dodgers’ manager, and led the team to three consecutive division titles from 2013 to 2015.
