Ron Washington acknowledged in a press conference Thursday that an incident involving infidelity led to his sudden resignation from the Rangers.
Washington didn't get into much detail and did not take questions from the gathered media. "I was not true to my wife," he admitted in a statement that lasted a little over three minutes. "After 42 years I broke my trust. I'm here today to own that and apologize to those I disappointed ... I look to the future and getting back to the game and my career." Sep 18 - 2:48 PM

Ron Washington has resigned as Rangers manager for personal reasons, the team announced.

Some stunning news on Friday afternoon. Washington's Rangers have been a disaster this year, but there's nothing any manager could have done about that given all of the team's injuries. We had more of an issue with Washington's in-game decision-making back when the Rangers were winning. It's too early to speculate on what Washington's off-field issues might be, though he did test positive for cocaine in 2009. Tim Bogar will be in the interim manager in his place.

Rangers signed manager Ron Washington to a one-year contract extension through 2015.

A vote of confidence for the Rangers' skipper, as his contract was set to expire after 2014. Washington owns a 611-524 record (.538) over seven seasons at the helm, including two AL pennants.

The Rangers have hired Bengie Molina as their first base coach.

Molina will also serve as a major league catching instructor. He's making the move after spending 2013 as the assistant hitting coach with the Cardinals.

Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports that the Rangers will promote longtime minor league manager Bobby Jones to serve as their first base coach in 2014.

Jones has been a coach in the Rangers organization since 1988, most recently serving as the manger at Triple-A Round Rock for the past three seasons. Steve Buechele, who managed at Double-A Frisco is expected to replace Jones as the manager at Round Rock.

Tim Bogar has been named the Rangers' bench coach.

The Rangers dismissed bench coach Jackie Moore a few days after the end of the regular season. Bogar managed the Angels' Double-A team in 2013 and served as third base coach for the Red Sox from 2010 to 2012.

Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports that the Rangers have interviewed Tim Bogar for a job on their coaching staff.

The Rangers are looking for a bench coach and a first base coach/infield instructor at the moment. Bogar managed the Angels' Double-A affiliate this past season and was the Red Sox third base coach from 2010 to 2012. The Angels currently have openings on their major league staff, so Bogar will undoubtedly be a candidate.

Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said one of his offseason priorities is to sign Ron Washington to an extension.

Washington is under contract for 2014 and Daniels has already said the skipper would return, but he wants to extend Wash's deal to avoid any "lame duck" thoughts heading into the season. "That would be my preference," Daniels said. "I’ve been as supportive as anybody, and we’re going to handle that behind the scenes. Wash and I haven’t talked about it yet. I haven’t talked to ownership about it yet. We will have that conversation internally."

The Rangers will not renew the contracts of bench coach Jackie Moore and first base coach Dave Anderson.

Ron Washington isn't going anywhere, but the Rangers are shaking up his staff a bit. Moore has been Washington's bench coach for the past five seasons while Anderson had been the team’s third base coach for the previous four seasons before moving to first base coach this year.

Rangers general manager Jon Daniels told FOX Sports' Jon Morosi that there is "not a question" Ron Washington will be back as manager in 2014.

The Rangers rallied late to force a tiebreaker game this season, but they lost to the Rays Monday and have faded badly down the stretch two straight years. Evidently, though, two World Series appearances the two years prior are enough for Wash to get another shot. He'll be on the hot seat in 2014.
