Cox to retire as Braves manager after next season

Posted:

NEW YORK (KWWL) - The Atlanta Braves say Bobby Cox will retire as manager after the 2010 season.

The team says Cox agreed to a one-year contract extension for 2010, then will start a five-year consulting agreement to advise the team in baseball operations.

Cox managed the Braves from 1978-81, switched to manage the Toronto Blue Jays from 1982-85, then returned to manage Atlanta in 1990.
