Marlins, manager Don Mattingly agree to four-year deal - CBSSports.com

Don Mattingly, long eyed as the choice of owner Jeffrey Loria to revive the Marlins, has agreed to take the Miami managing job, sources confirm.

Mattingly has seemd to be a fait accompli in Miami since he and the Dodgers parted ways late last week. Loria has been targeting him as the replacement for Dan Jennings since late summer, and the sides made it happen after what was described as a very positive meeting Monday.

Mattingly, the Dodgers manager the past five years, agreed to a four-year deal, according to Dodgers author Molly Knight, who first reported the agreement. It was reported on CBSSports.com Wednesday that there was every expectation for a deal.

Mattingly, one of two managers to win division crowns the past three years, has known Loria, a part-time New York resident for years.

Mattingly could not be reached, and the Marlins haven’t confirmed yet.
