• Embattled Guillen fired as manager of Marlins

    Summary of 5 articles · Updated Oct 23, 2012
    The Marlins fired Guillen Tuesday afternoon after a single disappointing year, even though Guillen has three years and $7.5 million remaining on his contract. And in Miami, one season is all Guillen got. The latest change comes even though Marlins still owe Guillen $7.5 million for the three years remaining on his contract. The move comes a little more than a year after Guillen was introduced as Marlins manager, a new face for an organization embarking on many changes. The Marlins on Tuesday dismissed Guillen after the 48-year-old led Miami to a disappointing 69-93 record and last-place finish in the National League East. The club is renewing the contracts of Reid Cornelius, the club's 2012 bullpen coach, and Joey Espada, who served as Guillen's third-base coach, but the rest of the staff will not return. "After careful consideration following the disappointment of the 2012 season, we decided to dismiss Ozzie," Marlins president Larry Beinfast said in a statement."
