After 10 seasons with the organization, Joe Girardi is out as manager of the New York Yankees.
Over that span, the Yankees won one World Series (2009) and one pennant. The team made the playoffs six times.
New York never won fewer than 84 games in a season under Girardi, and spent much of the past five seasons attempting to rebuild to the 100-win powerhouse of old. For Girardi, taking his budding Yankees and emerging star Aaron Judge to Game 7 of the ALCS wasn’t enough.
According to ESPN, Girardi has aspirations to work in baseball operations. Options could be him working in the commissioner’s office, a return to broadcasting or an outside-the-box option would be him making the jump to athletic director for a college.
For the Yankees, an outside option is likely up next for the new manager position.
