Former Florida Marlins manager Jim Leyland says the Los Angeles Dodgers manager's job is "not a match," according to a published report Saturday.
The Dodgers had added Leyland to a list of potential candidates as they awaited permission to speak with Felipe Alou of the Montreal Expos.
But Leyland apparently is not interested.
He told the Rocky Mountain News he had spoken Friday with Dodgers general manager Kevin Malone.
"We both decided that there is not a match," Leyland said.
Messages left for Dodgers comment were not immediately returned Saturday.
Leyland quit as Florida Marlins manager on Thursday and is Colorado's No. 1 choice to replace Don Baylor, who was fired. Leyland has spoken with the Rockies, but has not announced where he would like to be next year.
