Jim Leyland to serve as special assistant to Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski
“I’m going to do whatever (Dombrowski) wants me to do,” Leyland said to 105.1 FM host Drew Lane on Wednesday afternoon. “It won’t be the grind you go through as a manager, but I’m still going to be pretty active.”
His duties are expected to include a mix of scouting, evaluating and general hand-shaking.
Leyland stepped down as manager after the ALCS and was replaced by Brad Ausmus.
