The Buffalo Bisons will be looking for a new manager for 2014.
The team announced on Friday night that Marty Brown decided not to return to his position as Bisons manager for the coming season.
No replacement was named, and there is no announced timetable to find his successor.
Brown was with the Herd last year and had a one-year contract. He was in his third season managing the Triple-A affiliate for the Toronto Blue Jays, the first two in Las Vegas before the Jays moved their affiliation to Buffalo.
It’s possible that Brown decided to leave after being passed over for the Jays’ first base coaching job, which went to Tim Leiper.
Brown managed the Bisons from 2003-05 when the team was with the Cleveland Indians. His 312 wins as a manager is the most in the modern era, and he led Buffalo to a championship in 2004.
Buffalo had a 74-70 record under Brown during the 2013 season.
