Showalter will get 3-year deal that will start in 2011
The Orioles are planning on holding a news conference on Monday at Camden Yards to announce that they have hired Buck Showalter as their next manager.
Showalter will sign a three-year deal that will start after the season, according to team sources. The Orioles reached agreement with him this morning, and the agreement was first reported by ESPN. Showalter will be in the dugout on Tuesday when the Orioles start their next homestand against the Los Angeles Angels.
The coaching staff is expected to stay around until at least the end of the season.
Interim manager Juan Samuel will return to coaching third base and current third base coach Gary Allenson will return to managing Triple-A Norfolk.
