Despite being swept in the World Series the Detroit Tigers wasted no time in announcing manager Jim Leyland and his coaching staff would be back for 2013.

Next year will mark Leyland’s 22nd season as a major league manager and his eighth in Detroit. He led the Tigers to the World Series for the second time during his tenure in the Motor City.

”Detroit is a tremendous baseball town and I couldn’t dream of a better place to manage,” Leyland said in a statement. ”Tigers fans and the people of Michigan have supported us so well during my time here, I can’t even begin to express how much that means to me.”

The 67-year-old Leyland leads all active managers with 1,676 wins, good enough for 15th on the career list.
