Dave Trembley takes job with Atlanta Braves

Five months after being fired by the Orioles, former manager and baseball lifer Dave Trembley has landed the minor league field coordinator position with the Atlanta Braves, according to an industry source.

He is also expected to supervise the instruction of coaches and players throughout the Braves’ organization.

Trembley, who has been out of work since he was fired by the Orioles on June 3, could not be reached for comment.

Trembley, 59, spent eight years with the Orioles organization, including nearly three full years as manager, before he was dismissed after the team started 2010 with a 15-39 record and was buried in last in the American League East.

In parts of four seasons as manager, Trembley’s Orioles posted a 187-283 (.398 winning percentage) record. He spent more than two decades in the minors, mostly as a manager, before being promoted to the big leagues in 2007 as the Orioles’ bullpen coach.

Trembley worked part of that season as bench coach when Tom Trebelhorn was on personal leave and then was named the team’s interim manager when Sam Perlozzo was fired June 18.

Throughout his baseball career, Trembley, a former high school teacher and coach, has been known for his ability to relate to and instruct young players.

A class organization gets a class guy...

i met dave trembley about a month ago at the charlotte airport, ha said he was going to see his mom in watertown, ny. what a nice man, a real class act, best of luck mr. trembley.

This guy is one of the most underrated coaches, his start 15-39 was without 2 of his star players and the second lowest payroll in mlb. Outstanding man and if given the right opportunities with a good organization he will succeed.

I am so happy for Dave. What a nice man. He is one of the few good guys left. the Braves are fortunate to have him on their minor league team instructing these young guys. Congrats Dave.

Congrats to Dave. Glad to he landed with a good organization.

I was really hoping the O's would've resigned to some kind capacity within the organization. I really felt bad for the guy as the O's manager. He was in way over head, but you could tell he was putting his heart into it. I hope the best for him, he is a true professional

Congrats to Dave. Glad to hear to he landed with a good orginization. Best of luck Dave!
