Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland would not commit himself to coming back to manage the team next year, but did say the Tigers will be the last team he manages.
Leyland made the comments moments after the Tigers lost 4-3 in 10 innings to the San Francisco Giants in Game 4 of the World Series Sunday night.
"I don't really know that," Leyland said on mlive.com. "We're going to talk about some things in a day or so and I'm sure they'll have some type of an announcement. But tonight's not the night for that."
General manager Dave Dombrowski said after the Tigers won the American League Championship series over the New York Yankees that Leyland is welcome to return next year.
Leyland has said that he wants to keep managing.
"I like to manage, you know?" Leyland said Sunday night. "Contrary to what some people think, I think I'm pretty good at it. A lot of people don't agree with that. I'm not the best, and I'm not the worst. I think that since 2006 we've changed the culture around here. We've been in two World Series in the last seven years. That's not bad.
"I just want to wait for the right time."
If Leyland does come back, it will only be with the Tigers.
"This is all I can give you: I will not be managing anybody else but the Detroit Tigers next year," he said. "Unless it's the Mt. Lebanon Tigers, in Pittsburgh, Pa. But I'm not looking in any way, shape or form to go anyplace else. This is my last stop."
