The Marlins have fired manager Ozzie Guillen after just one season.

“After careful consideration following the disappointment of the 2012 season, we decided to dismiss Ozzie,” said Marlins president of baseball operations Larry Beinfest in a prepared statement. “Our managerial search begins immediately and our hope is that a new manager, along with roster improvements, will restore a winning culture.”

The Marlins went 69-93 last season and finished in last place in the National League East.

Guillen signed a four-year, $10 million contract when he was hired a year ago.

The next manager will become the eighth for Jeffrey Loria since he assumed ownership of the Marlins in 2002.
