The Miami Marlins have fired manager Ozzie Guillen and bench coach Joey Cora after one season

According to a bunch of reporters on Twitter, the Miami Marlins have fired manager Ozzie Guillen after one year on the job. Guillen had signed a four year contract, and is still owed $7.5 million by the Marlins.

The Marlins had sent Jhan Marinez and Osvaldo Martinez to Chicago as compensation for hiring Guillen, who still had a year left on his deal with the ChiSox after the 2011 season.

Also fired was Guillen's long-time bench coach, Joey Cora.

The Marlins made a big splash this past offseason by spending big bucks to lure Mark Buehrle and Heath Bell to the team as free agents for the club's first season in their new taxpayer-funded ballpark, while also signing Guillen to manage the team. Bell has been jettisoned, along with Hanley Ramirez, and the Marlins are apparently back in cost-cutting mode.

Buehrle, Ricky Nolasco, and Josh Johnson could be among those players shopped by the Marlins this offseason.
