MILWAUKEE, WI - The Milwaukee Brewers are reportedly set to relieve Ken Macha of his managerial duties following the club's subpar 77-85 campaign in 2010.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, citing sources familiar with the situation, confirmed that the team will not pick up the 2011 option on Macha's contract. An announcement may come as early as Monday.

"That's totally out of my control," Macha said of his status with the team after Sunday's season-ending 3-2 loss to Cincinnati. "It's not my decision."

Milwaukee finished the year third in the NL Central, 14 games back of the champion Reds.

The Brewers signed Macha to a two-year contract prior to the 2009 season and added a club option after he guided the club to a respectable 80-82 record that year.

Macha, 60, managed the Athletics to a record of 368-280 with three 90-plus win seasons and a pair of division titles from 2003-06. However, he was fired just two days after the club was swept by the Detroit Tigers in the 2006 American League Championship Series.
