The Dodgers have reportedly reached a three-year contract extension with manager Don Mattingly less than three months after a puzzling press conference left some doubt as to Mattingly's future with the team.
The news of the agreement was first reported Tuesday by ESPN's Ramona Shelburne.
Mattingly, 52, is under contract for 2014 after a vesting option in his deal was triggered by the team's victory over the Atlanta Braves in the National League Division Series. After the Dodgers lost to the St. Louis Cardinals in the National League Championship Series, Mattingly expressed his desire for an extension during his end-of-season press conference, leading to awkward exchanges between him, the media and Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti.
The new contract extension will replace the final year Mattingly has left on his current contract.
Mattingly has been managing the Dodgers since 2011 after replacing Joe Torre. The Dodgers are 260-225 (.536) in Mattingly's three seasons and coming off a 92-70 mark and National League West title last season.
