At age 70, is Joe Torre done managing after stepping away from the Dodgers?

Joe Torre announced that he’ll step down as Dodgers manager after the season, with Don Mattingly replacing him, but will the 70-year-old future Hall of Famer look to manage elsewhere?
Based on the early speculation, few people seem to think that’s likely.
Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com writes that Torre is “unlikely to manage in 2011,” noting that he’s “not really interested” and has a daughter starting high school. Of course, Rosenthal adds: “But if some team calls, who knows?”
The Mets could be the “some team” that calls, but Jon Heyman of SI.com speculates that Torre is “unlikely to get Mets managing job.” Andy Martino of the New York Daily News agrees, calling it “not at all” a fit because of age, the Mets’ shaky status as sure-fire contenders, and Torre’s likely asking price.
Torre is slated to reveal more about his future plans at a press conference tonight.
