Ned Colletti will return as the Dodgers' general manager next season, club owner Frank McCourt said Wednesday.
McCourt had declined to discuss the issue all season, even after the Dodgers clinched the National League West championship. However, after the Dodgers lost in the National League Championship Series, McCourt said Colletti would be back.
The Dodgers won a playoff series for the first time in 20 years, reaching the playoffs for the second time in three years under Colletti.
"What we've accomplished is something significant for the organization," McCourt said.
"We've turned a big corner. I'm proud of Ned and all the people in the front office. I'm proud of Joe and all the coaches. I couldn't be more pleased with the job everybody has done."
