SEATTLE, WA (WTVB) - Tigers hitting coach Lloyd McClendon is headed to Seattle. The Mariners have hired McClendon as the team's new manager. He had been in Detroit since 2006, working as bullpen coach when the Tigers went to the World Series that year and then was named hitting coach in 2007. 

The 54-year-old McClendon previously managed the Pittsburgh Pirates from 2001 to 2005 and was one of several candidates who interviewed to succeed the retired Jim Leyland before the Tigers on Sunday announced that Brad Ausmus would be their new manager.
