MIAMI -- The Florida Marlins announced on Wednesday they will keep Edwin Rodriguez as the team's manager for the 2011 season.

Rodriguez, who took over for the fired Fredi Gonzalez in June and went 46-46 over the remainder of 2010, was given a one-year contract extension. Financial terms were not disclosed.

He was in the running for the job with Bo Porter, who on Tuesday was named the Washington Nationals' third base coach.

Rodriguez, 50, became the first Puerto Rican-born manager in MLB history when he took over for Gonzalez -- now the Braves manager -- on June 23. Before his promotion to the majors, Rodriguez had been the manager for Florida's Triple-A affiliate in New Orleans. This is Rodriguez's first major league managerial role.

The Marlins also added Perry Hill to their staff as infield and first base coach on Wednesday. Hill was previously with the organization from 2002-06.

Additionally, the team will bring back pitching coach Randy St. Claire, hitting coach John Mallee, bench coach Brandon Hyde, third base coach Joe Espada and bullpen coach Reid Cornelius.
