Lou Piniella, the winningest manager in Mariners history and a member of the team’s Hall of Fame, was hired Friday by the Cincinnati Reds as a senior advisor to baseball operations.

The 72-year-old Piniella will serve as a consultant with the Reds and spend time with the team in spring training, MLB.com reported. He managed the Reds from 1990-92 and led them to the World Series title in 1990.

Piniella was hired by the Mariners before the 1993 season and managed them for 10 seasons, holding an 840-711 record. He led the Mariners to the American League Championship Series in 1995 and 2001, and the 2001 team tied the major-league record for most wins in a season with 116. The Mariners also won three AL West titles and made four postseason appearances under Piniella.

He entered the Mariners’ Hall of Fame in 2014.

The Reds are managed by Bryan Price, who was Piniella’s pitching coach with the Mariners.
