After careful consideration, the club decided to respect his wishes.”Sutton, who was promoted from second-team coach to first-team manager when former Lotte coach Heo Mun-ho was fired on May 11, 2021, led the team for about two years and three months, but left the club after failing to fulfill his dream of reaching the postseason.Sutton, the fifth foreign manager in KBO history, has a winning percentage of 0.471 (162 wins, 182 losses, 12 draws) in the KBO.
