Miley to Columbus

Nice to see the guy land on his feet:

Former Reds manager Dave Miley was hired as skipper of the New York Yankees' Triple-A affiliate in Columbus.

The Clippers announced the hiring Tuesday, and named Miley's coaching staff. Neil Allen, who spent last season as the Yankees' bullpen coach, will be the Clippers' pitching coach. Kevin Long will return as the team's hitting coach, and Frank Howard will also be back as the Clippers' outfielders/first-base coach.

Miley replaces Bucky Dent, who was hired as bench coach of the Reds on Nov. 4.

"As soon as the job was offered, I jumped at it," Miley told The Columbus Dispatch for Wednesday's editions from his home in Covington, Ky. "It was a no-brainer."

Miley's had a lot of success at the AAA level in the past, so I'm sure he'll go over well here in Columbus.
