(TSX / STATS) -- DETROIT -- Brad Ausmus will not be brought back as manager of the Detroit Tigers, the club announced Friday, but he and his staff will finish out the season.

"This is not a happy day for me or for the organization," general manager Al Avila said. "We will not be extending the contract of Brad Ausmus for 2018.

"The club got a point where we needed a change on the field. We needed to change the roster. That's when we started trading players. So we said, 'You know what? Let's just take a whole new road and open up to new things.' We'll have fresh leadership, new leadership as we move forward. He understood that very well."
