Geren Given One-Year Extension

By  | 

Oakland Athletics manager Bob Geren has received a one-year contract extension through the 2010 season, with a team option for 2011.

Geren is 151-172 in two years running the A's after being
promoted from bench coach in November 2006 by general manager and
close friend Billy Beane. Oakland finished third in the AL West
last season at 75-86.

Geren played five major league seasons as a catcher with the New
York Yankees and San Diego before his coaching career.
