Dodgers Extend GM Ned Colletti's Contract

Ned Colletti and the Los Angeles Dodgers have reportedly come to terms on a contract extension. Colletti has been the Dodgers general manager since 2005. The Dodgers made the playoffs in three of his first four years before entering a drought that Colletti is making big moves to end.

The Los Angeles Dodgers and general manager Ned Colletti have aggreed on a contract that will keep Colletti in the office he has occupied since 2005, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports. Both sides had mutual options for an additional year on Colletti's contract, but Dodgers ownership had approached Colletti with an extension beyond that. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Colletti was hired by Frank McCourt, so the extension is a strong signal that the new Dodgers ownership believes he's capable of steering the team to success. The Dodgers made the playoffs in three of his first four years before entering a drought in the later McCourt years. Colletti has worked hard to end that drought, including this year's blockbuster trade with the Boston Red Sox that brought Carl Crawford, Adrian Gonzalez and Josh Beckett to Los Angeles.
