Tigers Extend Leyland, Dombrowski

On Monday, the Tigers announced contract extensions for manager Jim Leyland through the 2012 season and president and CEO Dave Dombrowski through 2015.

In addition to the extensions for Dombrowski and Leyland, the Tigers also announced that much of the front office leadership has received contract extensions as well, including assistant general manager/VP Al Avila, VP of amateur scouting David Chadd, VP of player personnel Scott Reid and VP and legal counsel John Westhoff.

There was no mention of changed responsibilities for either Dombrowski or Avila, as had been rumored as a possibility, but they also were not ruled out either.
