Tim Wallach out of running for Brewers’ job, staying in LA
Tony Jackson of ESPNLosAngeles.com reports that Tim Wallach is officially out of the running for the Brewers’ managerial opening and is all but guaranteed to remain with the Dodgers as a third base coach in 2011.
Wallach re-signed with the Dodgers earlier this month, but his contract allowed him to pursue manager jobs with a pre-selected number of teams. Milwaukee was on the list, but Toronto wasn’t, and now Wallach will spend a year on Don Mattingly’s coaching staff before likely hitting the interview circuit again next offseason.
After managing at Triple-A last season there was some thought that Wallach would be Mattingly’s bench coach next year, but instead that job is expected to go to former Royals manager Trey Hillman.
