Report: Fredi Gonzalez To Replace Bobby Cox As Atlanta Braves Manager

As everyone expected, Fredi Gonzalez took over officially as the new manager of the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday, replacing Bobby Cox who retired. Gonzalez' deal is for three years with an option for a fourth. Gonzalez will also have a coaching staff with some familiar faces while others will be leaving.

The Braves will retain Roger McDowell as the pitching coach, Eddie Perez as the bullpen coach, and Brian Snitker as the third base coach. Terry Pendleton will be retained, but will become the first base coach and infield instructor. Carlos Tosca will follow Fre-Go from Florida to Atlanta and become the Braves new bench coach. Chino Cadahia and Glenn Hubbard will not be retained. The club will undergo a search for a new hitting coach.
