Guillen Leaving White Sox To Become Manager Of Marlins

Last updated on Tuesday, September 27, 2011

(CHICAGO, IL) - Last night’s White Sox win was the last for manager Ozzie Guillen in Chicago.

Guillen is leaving, reportedly to become the manager of the Miami Marlins in 2012.

As compensation, sources say the Sox will receive two minor leaguers from the Marlins.

The 47-year-old Guillen led the White Sox to a World Series title in 2005, ending a drought of 88 years between championships for Chicago's American League team.

Guillen met with White Sox owner Jerry Reinsdorf on Monday morning while Marlins interim manager Jack McKeon announced Monday that he would not return.

McKeon took over for Edwin Rodriguez, who resigned in June from the franchise currently known as the Florida Marlins.

The team will change its name to Miami next season when it moves into a new stadium.
