Rockies name interim GM Bill Schmidt permanent general manager

The Colorado Rockies have wrapped up their general manager search, and it doesn’t appear to have been much of a search at all. On Saturday, the team announced Bill Schmidt will have the interim label removed and take over as general manager permanently. Schmidt has served as interim general manager since his predecessor Jeff Bridich stepped down in April.

“After five months as our interim general manager, it became increasingly clear that Bill was the right person to lead this franchise forward,” Rockies president and CEO Greg Feasel said in a statement. “We already knew Bill as a trusted and respected baseball professional within the game. He came into a challenging situation and quickly Impacted the play on and off the field.”

Schmidt joined the Rockies way back in Oct. 1999, and he has held a variety of roles with the organization, including vice president of scouting and special assistant to the general manager. Prior to joining Colorado, Schmidt worked as a minor-league coach as well as in the front office with the Yankees, Reds, and Cleveland. He also spent time with MLB’s Scouting Bureau.
