FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) - Former Boston Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine has been hired as the athletics director at Sacred Heart University.
The university in Fairfield, Conn. said Friday that Valentine's appointment will be formally announced next Tuesday.
Valentine was fired in October after just one season in Boston, when the Red Sox went 69-93.
He managed the Texas Rangers from 1985-92 and the Mets from 1996-02, leading New York to the 2000 World Series. After managing in Japan, he joined ESPN as an analyst. Last month he signed on to be the part-time co-host of a weekday talk show for NBC Sports Radio that debuts in April.
Valentine is a native of Stamford, Conn. who worked as the director of public safety for the city before taking the job with the Red Sox.
