Rockies signed manager Walt Weiss to a three-year contract extension.

Troy Renck of the Denver Post first reported the news. Weiss received a one-year deal when he was hired last winter and led the club to a 74-88 record in his first season as a major league manager. It was enough for the Rockies to make a multi-year commitment.

The Rockies and manager Walt Weiss could have a multi-year contract extension agreed upon by the end of next week.

Weiss went 74-88 in his first year at the helm of the Rockies, and apparently it was enough to convince ownership that he was the man for the job in the long term. Rockies owner Dick Monfort has been involved in the process the entire way and seems intent on locking up Weiss, who was just on a one-year deal, quickly. Weiss had expressed a desire to return at multiple points throughout the season.

Rockies manager Walt Weiss will meet with team owner Dick Monfort and members of the front office beginning Wednesday.

Monfort has already said that he wants Weiss back for 2014, but the two sides still need to hammer out a contract. While Weiss worked on a one-year deal this past season, he has acknowledged that having more than one year on his contract might have an impact on how his players view him. The Rockies finished at 74-88 this season.

Dante Bichette will resign after one season as the Rockies' hitting coach.

It's for personal reasons, as Bichette has had trouble being away from his family. The Rockies are currently tied for second in the National League with 690 runs scored this season.

Walt Weiss is expected to return for his second season as the Rockies manager in 2014.

Rockies owner Dick Monfort clarified Friday that he wants Weiss back, and that Weiss wants to return. The only thing left to do now is iron out a contract, though negotiations won't begin until after the conclusion of the season.
