Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland will be stepping down, FOX Sports MLB Insider Ken Rosenthal reports.

Leyland informed the team after the end of the ALCS, Rosenthal reports, adding that the manager told the team that it was time for someone younger to do the job. Leyland, 68, has been a major league manager for 22 years, compiling a 1,769-1,728 overall record. He spent eight years with the Tigers and won the World Series with the Florida Marlins.

The team has called a news conference for 11:30 a.m. ET.
