Brook Jacoby finds new job with Rangers

Although there has been no formal announcement about the coaching staff, the writing was pretty much on the wall for Brook Jacoby when new Reds skipper Bryan Price recently named Don Long as his hitting coach, a position formerly held by Jacoby under departed manager Dusty Baker for seven seasons.

Don't feel too bad for Jacoby, though (not that some Reds fans would after clamoring for him to be fired years ago), because the 53-year-old has found work elsewhere.

Jacoby has re-joined the Rangers organization as the team's new assistant hitting coordinator under manager Ron Washington. He previously served four seasons as a hitting coach in the Texas organization before coming to Cincinnati prior to the 2007 campaign.

Jacoby was originally hired by the Reds by former general manager Wayne Krivsky to fill a void in then manger Jerry Narron's staff.
