Rangers fire bench coach and first base coach

11 Comments

Ron Washington’s job is apparently safe despite another early (pre-)playoff exit by the Rangers, but the team announced that bench coach Jackie Moore has been fired.

Moore was Washington’s right-hand man for the past five seasons, but Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star Telegram reports that the 74-year-old is expected to retire. He wanted to remain on the job.

Texas also fired first base coach Dave Anderson, although apparently he may still take another job in the organization.
