The Washington Nationals are planning to hire Arizona Diamondbacks third base coach, Matt Williams as manager.
It is unclear when an official announcement will be made.
Williams’, 47, will be replacing retired Davey Johnson. This will be Williams’ first managerial job at any level. He had been on the Diamondbacks’ coaching staff since 2010, first as first base coach then as third base coach.
Bench coach Randy Knorr will remain with the Nationals as their bench coach under Williams.
