The team announced Tuesday that Leyland has a contract for next season, and his coaching staff also has been invited to return.

This will be Leyland's 22nd season as a major league manager and his eighth in Detroit. He led the Tigers to the World Series for the second time during his time with the club. Detroit was swept by San Francisco on Sunday.

The 67-year-old Leyland leads all active managers with 1,676 wins, a total that puts him 15th on the career list.
