Los Angeles Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti has a new multiyear deal in place to remain with the team, CBS Sports reported Saturday.

Colletti, who has been the Dodgers general manager since 2005, said Friday that Don Mattingly would return but nothing official about his own status.

Colletti's new contract could be for up to three years, while other sources told CBS Sports it may be for two years.

His old deal included mutual options after this season. The Los Angeles Times reported more than a week ago that the Dodgers made an offer to Colletti.

Colletti could not be reached Saturday morning for comment and club president Stan Kasten would not comment.

Colletti was reportedly praised by the Dodgers new ownership group after pulling off a nine-player blockbuster trade that included bringing first baseman Adrian Gonzalez, starting pitcher Josh Beckett and outfielder Carl Crawford over from the Boston Red Sox.

The Dodgers are 7-12 since the trade but are still in the National League wild card chase.

Colletti had to gut the team's payroll down to $90 million under former owner Frank McCourt but has been able to spend freely since the takeover of the Guggenheim Partners -- led by Mark Walter, Magic Johnson and Kasten -- in March.

Colletti has also signed outfielder Matt Kemp to an eight-year, $160-million contract extension and traded for shortstop Hanley Ramirez, outfielder Shane Victorino and pitcher Joe Blanton, and extended outfielder Andre Ethier's contract.

Though the Dodgers made the playoffs in three of Colletti's first four seasons, Colletti has been criticized for the expensive signings of pitcher Jason Schmidt and outfielder Andruw Jones that proved to be costly mistakes.
