Assist. GM Evans Leaves White Sox
CHICAGO (AP) _ Dan Evans, the assistant general manager of the Chicago White Sox, resigned Friday after almost 20 years with the team _ three days after general manager Ron Schueler quit.
He declined an offer to stay involved with the club’s day-to-day operations.
Evans began as a public relations intern in 1981 and advanced to assistant general manager/director of baseball operations.
``I truly enjoyed my time with the White Sox,″ Evans said. ``I respect the decision to name Ken Williams as the team’s new general manager, but now I feel that it is in my best interest to go elsewhere.″
Schueler was replaced as GM by Williams, the team’s vice president of player development since 1997.
On Tuesday, Schueler resigned as GM after a 10-year-run that included two trips to the postseason, capped by this season’s AL Central title. The White Sox were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs by the Seattle Mariners.
