MIAMI (AP) — Ozzie Guillen’s website said he’s joining the Florida Marlins, but the post was soon taken down.
The post quoted Guillen as saying he was thrilled to join the Marlins and couldn’t wait to get started. The post went up Monday night, then was removed a short time later and replaced by a blog that discussed Guillen’s departure from the Chicago White Sox while making no mention of the Marlins.
After managing his final game with Chicago on Monday, Guillen announced he was leaving but said nothing regarding another job. Hours earlier, Marlins manager Jack McKeon said he’ll retire at the end of the season Wednesday.
Marlins officials haven’t commented on their search for a new manager.
