Tigers bring Jim Leyland back for the 2013 season

DETROIT - Jim Leyland insisted throughout the latter part of the season that there would be a time and a place to discuss his managing future.

That moment came Tuesday - when the Detroit Tigers announced Leyland would be back in 2013 with a one-year contract extension.

The Tigers and their manager quickly ended any remaining speculation about his status, just two days after Detroit was swept by the San Francisco Giants in the World Series.

Leyland was managing on a one-year deal this year as well - and he seems comfortable taking his future year by year at this point in his career.
