Bobby Cox not interested in managing Blue Jays

Former Atlanta Braves skipper Bobby Cox isn't interested in another run with the Toronto Blue Jays, even if their blockbuster trade with the Miami Marlins is completed.

Former Atlanta Braves manager Bobby Cox has no interest in another stint managing the Toronto Blue Jays, reports Mark Bowman. If the Jays' massive trade with the Miami Marlins is approved, they stand to become serious contenders in the AL East. That's not enough to get Cox back in the dugout, he said:

"There is not another guy in the world I'd like to work for more than [Blue Jays President and CEO Paul] Beeston. But that is not going to bring me out of retirement. I'm retired and I'm happy here in Atlanta."

Cox managed the Blue Jays between 1982 and 1985, in between two periods at the helm of the Braves. Toronto finished at the top of the AL East in 1985, but were eliminated in the American League Championship Series by the Kansas City Royals after leading the series three games to one.

Cox managed the Braves from 1978 to 1981, then again from 1990 to 2010. In his 25 total years he had a record of 2,149 wins and 1,709 losses. He took the Braves to 14 NL East titles, five National League Championships, and their 1995 World Series victory.
