Orel Hershiser is leaving his front-office job with the Texas Rangers less than three months after he resigned as the team's pitching coach, after 3 1/2 seasons in the position. In November, Hershiser became an executive assistant to Rangers president Jeff Cogen. Hershiser joined the Rangers five years earlier, in November 2001, when he was tabbed as an associate to former general manager John Hart. He had no prior coaching experience when he replaced the fired Oscar Acosta as the team's pitching coach in June 2002.

Manager Buck Showalter retained Hershiser as pitching coach when he was hired after the 2002 season. Bullpen coach Mark Connor replaced Hershiser as pitching coach last fall.
