Padres fire manager Bud Black

The Padres announced that they have relieved manager Bud Black of his duties. The team will begin
a formal search for an interim manager to play out the remainder of the 2015 season immediately, per
a Padres press release. Until that search is concluded, bench coach Dave Roberts will serve as the club’s

Black’s 9 years as manager of the Padres have helped to make him one of baseball’s most respected skippers.
The move has been speculated upon in the past, but it still comes as somewhat of a shock to see it actually
executed. In 1362 career games as a manager, all with San Diego, Black has totaled a record of 649-713 despite
routinely having to work with one of baseball’s lowest payrolls. A pitching coach prior to his work as a manager,
he’s drawn praise for his work with many of the Padres’ young arms over the course of his career in the dugout.

The 32-33 Padres have yet to fully live up to expectations, although it’s tough to pin those struggles on Black.
