There's absolutely no way Mike Scioscia returns to manage the Angels following Joe Maddon's firing ... the former Halos coach tells TMZ Sports he's officially done with that part of his life.
The 63-year-old, who coached L.A. from 2000 to 2018 -- winning one World Series -- told us out at LAX that even though his ex-team is looking for another manager after canning Maddon this week, he won't be a candidate.
"No, man," he said with a laugh. "No, I'm relaxing now. I'm retired."
Scioscia is still hanging around the game -- he coached the U.S. Olympics team to a silver medal in Tokyo last year -- and he's slated to be a manager for one of the teams in the All-Star Futures Game next month.
He made it clear, though, dabbling here and there on the end of the dugout bench is as far as he'll go these days.
"I've done my time," he said. "I loved it. But now, I'm in a little different scenario."
