Guy was just announced as the Dodgers president of baseball operations an hour ago, but a lot of people have already started wondering if Andrew Friedman would stick with Don Mattingly as manager. Some have speculated about prying Joe Maddon away from the Rays — though he is under contract and would require compensation.
Initial reports, however, suggest that Mattingly will keep his job:

I imagine part of this is contingent on having a conversation with Mattingly about, you know, playing your best players in playoff elimination games, which Mattingly did not do in the deciding game of the NLDS.
