Coaching changes

Daren Brown, the Seattle Mariners interim manager during the 2010 season, stated that he had interest in returning as the full-time manager in 2011.[1] On October 5, 2010, The Seattle Times reported that Mariners had requested and received permission from the Kansas City Royals to interview their bench coach John Gibbons, who previously served as the Toronto Blue Jays manager.[2] The Seattle Times also reported that the Mariners interviewed Bobby Valentine and Lloyd McClendon for the open managerial position. On October 15, 2010, Eric Wedge was hired as the manager.

Death of Dave Niehaus

Long-time broadcaster Dave Niehaus suffered a myocardial infarction (heart attack) at his Bellevue, Washington, home on November 10, 2010, and died at age 75 while preparing to barbecue some ribs on his deck.[3] Heart problems had forced Niehaus to undergo two angioplasties in 1996, causing him to give up smoking and change his diet. He is survived by his wife, three children, and six grandchildren. The team wore patches on their jerseys in commemoration of Niehaus during the 2011 season.[4]
