Jack McKeon will not manage Marlins after 2011

Jack McKeon and the Marlins have agreed that someone else will manage the team next season, SI.com's Jon Heyman reports.

McKeon, who turns 81 on Nov. 23, has piloted the Marlins to a 28-35 record since taking over for Edwin Rodriguez, and there had been rumblings that both sides were interested in making the arrangement permanent. However, with this news, Florida will now enter the market for a new manager, which could end up being Ozzie Guillen of the White Sox, who has been linked to the team for the past year.

The longtime manager, however, denied the report to Jim Bowden on MLB Network Radio, saying there is "no truth" to it.

McKeon, if he wants to, will remain with the Marlins in some capacity if he does not return as skipper.

Jack McKeon will not manage Marlins after 2011

I have read this article and it is consistent with what has been put out there in the media which is that Ozzie Guillen hands down will be the hot coaching commodity this offseason.

I have also read some of the comments assoicated with this article about the prospects of Guillen managing the Florida Marlins in 2012 and it has not been overwhelmingly flattering.

My question for Florida Marlins fans is what would your feelings be about the prospects of Willie Randolph being your team's manager in 2012? The reason that I threw his name into this discussion is because he has had success managing in the National League and is familiar with the the National League East's style of play. Just looking for some feedback.

The Marlins needed to make a change but be careful what you wish for with Ozzie Guillen.  He is a good manager but not a great one.  He is an aquired taste but one that gets old quickly.  Whoever they get has their work cut out for them in that team, management and market.

This barely makes a sentence on the SoFla sports air waves.  It's not really news and not surprising.  What is though, and what nobody can figure out, is where Ozzie Guillen fits in.  He's been mentioned since the Girardi days.  He has a home in Miami and had a cup of coffee with the franchise in 03.  Well, if it's best for the org to hire Ozzie, then bulk up on Tylenol.  Between him and Hanley, they're going to drive us nuts.

I think it will work wonders. Especially in the case of Hanley Ramirez. Now they got a guy who is going to get in these players grill.

Please, PLEASE! Take Ozzie!!!

A White Sox fan could ask for little more than to have him underachieving in Florida instead of Chicago.
