MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Ken Macha has been hired as manager of the Milwaukee Brewers, taking over from Dale Sveum following the team's first postseason appearance since 1982.

The 58-year-old Macha, who managed Oakland to a pair of AL West titles, agreed to a two-year contract. He replaces Dale Sveum, who became interim manager when Ned Yost was fired with 12 games left in the regular season. Sveum was dropped from consideration on Oct. 17.

Macha led Oakland to a 368-260 record. He was fired two days after the Athletics were swept by Detroit in the 2006 AL championship series.
