Ron Washington Departed Over Legal Issues

Did Roger Goodell cover this up too?

I have learned this evening through a source with knowledge of the situation that long-time Texas Rangers skipper Ron Washington’s sudden departure from the club was due to impending legal issues stemming from an alleged sexual assault of a reporter. I have cross-checked this information and feel confident in going forward with what I know, and am currently reaching out to obtain more details of the situation. Please follow our official Twitter account at @TweetTheScoop for details as I get them.

Ron Washington resigns

Bogar’s name often comes up for other jobs, so he might be more than interim.

Best of luck to Ron.

Ron Washington issued the following statement regarding his resignation today as manager of the Texas Rangers: 

 
“Today, I have submitted my resignation from the job I love – managing the Rangers – in order to devote my full attention to addressing an off-the-field personal matter.   As painful as it is, stepping away from the game is what’s best for me and my family…

Bench coach Tim Bogar has been appointed interim manager for the remainder of the 2014 season. Bogar, who has spent the last 11 seasons as a major league coach and minor league manager, is in his first season on the Texas staff.
