The Angels have announced that they have fired manager Brad Ausmus after just one season with the team.
I want to thank Brad for his hard work and dedication to this organization over the last two seasons as both a special assistant and field manager. He navigated this franchise through one of its most difficult seasons with class and professionalism.
According to numerous sources, the front runner to get the Angels job could be a familiar face.
Cubs parted ways with Joe Maddon over the weekend, speculation will surely abound that Maddon is now the Angels’ top target. The 65-year-old Maddon spent more than a decade as a coach on the Angels’ Major League staff and even served as interim manager for the Halos in two different seasons, totaling 51 games.
Angels this season finished with a 72-89 record and will miss the 2019 postseason.
