The Detroit Tigers announced Friday that they will not be extending team manager Brad Ausmus’ contract after the 2017 season.

Ausmus and the rest of his staff will remain with the team until the end of the 2017 season, but after that, it’s unknown who will take over the reins.

In a release Friday, Tigers Executive Vice President and General Manager Al Avila praised the job that Ausmus did with the team,

As we transition the ballclub in a new direction, I feel it’s best we have a new approach and a fresh start with the manager position. Brad has done an admirable job under, at times, difficult circumstances, especially this season, and we appreciate his professionalism and dedication to the Tigers the past four years. Our search for a new manager is underway. We plan to keep an open-mind in considering current members of the coaching staff for positions in 2018, but that will be in conjunction with the manager we hire.

Ausmus became the team’s manager in November of 2013. During his four seasons as Tigers manager, the Tigers have had a 312-325 (.490) record.
