Report: Brown will not return to Bisons

by Amy Moritz

It looks like the Buffalo Bisons will be looking for a new manager for 2014.

Toronto-based Sportsnet is reporting that Marty Brown decided not to return to the Bisons as the team's manager this season. 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 opened first base coaching job which went to Tim Leiper. 

Brown managed the Bisons from 2003-05 when the team was with the Cleveland Indians. 

In the past few weeks, the Blue Jays have announced several player signings to minior league contracts including infielders Jared Goedert and Steve Tolleson and righthanded pitcher Tomo Ohka along with resigning righthanded pitcher Bobby Korecky.
