Cox Signs One Year Extension With Braves

By  | 

ATLANTA (AP) -- Bobby Cox will be back for a 24th season as
manager of the Atlanta Braves after agreeing to a one-year contract
extension. The 67-year-old Cox says he began talking with general manager Frank Wren about the extension last season.

Cox is the winningest manager in franchise history. He's in his
27th season as a big league skipper and has said in recent years he
has started to think about retirement. But today he said he's not
ready to leave the game. Cox led the Braves to 14 straight division championships from 1991-2005, including the 1995 World Series championship.
