Longtime Los Angeles Angels manager Mike Scioscia announced on Sunday that he will not return to the team in 2019. He made the announcement following the team’s 5-4 win over the Oakland Athletics.

Scioscia’s job status has been mentioned in the news the past several months. In August, there was a report that said he would step down following the season by The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal.

He denied those rumors. He even called Rosenthal’s report, “poppycock.” Scioscia’s 10-year contract with the Angels expired on Sunday.

Now with Scioscia making this announcement, the team will begin to look for his replacement beginning on Monday. Whoever the team hires will be their first new manager since the 2000 season.

The 59-year-old Upper Darby, Pennsylvania native spent the past 19-years as a manager of the Angels. The team ended with an 80-82 record following the win over the Athletics.

This is the second straight year that the team finished with an 80-82 record. In 2016, the team had a 74-88 record under Scioscia.

The Angels have not made the playoffs under their outing manager since the 2014 season. They were swept by the Kansas City Royals.

In 19-seasons as the Angels manager, he went 1,650-1,428. He also had a 53.6 win percentage.

As the Angels manager, he also guided the team to the World Series Championship in 2002. The team defeated the San Francisco Giants in Game 7.
