Ozzie Guillen wasn't able to get a contract extension in Chicago and asked to be released by the club.

Turns out, he had an iron in the fire.

Not long afterward, Guillen's website had a quote from Guillen saying how excited he was to be joining the Marlins.

Guillen was 678-617 with the White Sox.  He will not manage the final two games of the season.

Marlins' interim manager Jack McKeon has already announced he will retire at the end of the season.
