Report: Colletti to sign multi-year contract extension.

The Dodgers and general manager Ned Colletti have agreed on a multi-year extension, according to CBSsports.com.

The report comes one day after Colletti said that manager Don Mattingly would return in 2013.

Writes Jon Heyman:

Colletti’s old contract called for mutual options after this season, but a new deal was being discussed for more than a week. …The new deal will be a multiyear arrangement. One person said it could wind up being for three years, though previous reports suggested two.

The Dodgers have yet to announce a new contract for Colletti. But since both Colletti and Mattingly have expiring contracts in 2013, it makes sense if the new ownership group would want both to begin the new season with a more certain future.
