The team made the announcement late Wednesday night after owner Dick Monfort and top officials deliberated at the general managers' meetings - held at a hotel Monfort owns.
Weiss, the 1988 AL Rookie of the Year, and Arizona coach Matt Williams were thought to be the favorites to replace Tracy, who quit Oct. 7 following a last-place finish in the NL West. Rockies bench coach Tom Runnells and first baseman Jason Giambi also interviewed.
