The San Diego Padres won't hire Pat Murphy as their permanent manager.
Murphy took over in mid-June after Bud Black was fired. San Diego was 42-53 under Murphy and finished fourth in the division -- 23 games behind the Dodgers. Murphy had been guiding the Padres' Triple-A team in El Paso when he was promoted.
"All in all, I think for me personally it was a great experience," he said before his fate was announced. "So I'm very grateful and I'm looking forward to the future."
