CHICAGO (AP) — White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen has been released from his contract to pursue other opportunities.
The team announced the move following its 4-3 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday night.
Guillen met with owner Jerry Reinsdorf for about 30 minutes earlier in the day. Guillen said he told Reinsdorf he would like to return, but only for a contract extension for more money. He had one year remaining on his current deal.
The White Sox said in a release they retain the right to compensation should Guillen accept a managerial position with another major league team for the 2012 season.
