Florida Marlins To Hire Jack McKeon To Manage The Team For The Remainder Of The 2011 Season

MIAMI — Change turned out for the better when the Marlins made an in-season managerial move in 2003. The end result was the second World Series title in franchise history after Jack McKeon took over as manager.

On Monday, the Marlins are expected to reintroduce McKeon as manager, eight years after winning a championship and six years removed from his last season in the dugout.

According to a source, McKeon will be named Florida’s interim manager a day after Edwin Rodriguez unexpectedly resigned on Father’s Day. He will close out the 2011 season, and the team is expected to make a full-scale managerial search before it moves into its new ballpark in ’12.
