Ryan Resigns as Texas Rangers’ CEO
Nolan Ryan will be stepping down from his post as CEO of the Texas Rangers at the end of the month, he announced Thursday.
Ryan, 66, said he is not set on staying away from baseball, but does not yet know in what capacity he will be involved.
“Will I be the CEO of another major league ballclub? No, I won’t,” Ryan said at a news conference at Rangers Ballpark.
“But I’m not going to sit here today and tell you that I don’t know what a year from now might bring. This might be the final chapter of my baseball career. If there was something else I did, it certainly wouldn’t be in the role I had with the Rangers.”
There are no plans in place to name a new CEO, but Rangers executive vice president Rob Matwick will take on extra responsibilities in the meantime, including representing the team at MLB meetings. Ryan had been CEO since March 2011.’
