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.
