Replacing 68-year-old Jim Leyland as the Detroit Tigers manager will be 44-year-old Brad Ausmus, according to CBSSports.com. MLB Network insider Ken Rosenthal confirmed the news.

Only a few years removed from the end of his 18-year pro career, Ausmus, who spent some time in Detroit, managed Team Israel in the World Baseball Classic but has never coached or managed in the minors or the majors. He worked in 2013 as a special assistant for the San Diego Padres.

Ausmus also interviewed for the Chicago Cubs job.

97.1 The Ticket’s Jamie Samuelson pointed to Ausmus as a prime candidate for the job the same day the Tigers announced Leyland’s retirement.

Along with Ausmus, Detroit interviewed Tigers bench coach Lloyd McClendon, Los Angeles Dodgers third base coach Tim Wallach and Padres bench coach Rick Renteria.
