Joe Girardi is reportedly out as the manager of the New York Yankees.
Joe Girardi, who has been the manager of the New York Yankees since 2008, is officially out, according to a report from ESPN 1000. Girardi just completed the final year of his four-year, $16 million deal and it doesn’t look like his contract will be renewed. It’s unclear whether it was his decision or the team’s decision.
Girardi won three World Series titles as a player and one as a coach for the franchise. He’ll finish with a 910-710 record as manager over the 10 years.
David Kaplan was the first to report the news:

Here’s more, via ESPN:
Girardi, 53, and the Yankees came within one game of going to the World Series this year, losing to the Houston Astros in Game 7 of the American League Championship Series. In 10 years at the helm, Girardi won one World Series and made the playoffs six times. He has talked extensively about how the talent at the major and minor league levels could bode very well for the Yankees in years to come, but now Girardi will not be a part of that future.
Prior to coaching the Yankees, Girardi coached the Marlins for one season, leading them to a 78-84 record.
