The Miami Marlins have fired controversial manager Ozzie Guillen, per Major League Baseball’s official Twitter account:

Guillen was hired by the Marlins in September 2011 away from the White Sox, where Guillen won a World Series title in just his second managerial season. The Marlins struggled to a 69-93 record in 2012 with Guillen the cause of much turmoil in the locker room as well as in the media, including his highly scrutinized support of dictator Fidel Castro which lead to a five-game suspension by the organization.

Guillen has a career coaching record of 747-710 in nine seasons, eight with the White Sox and one with the Marlins. Guillen had three years and $7.5 million left on the contract he signed with the Marlins in 2011.
