White Sox hitting coach Greg Walker resigns

  • Updated

CHICAGO | White Sox hitting coach Greg Walker has resigned after nine seasons.

A former player for the White Sox, said he told owner Jerry Reinsdorf a month ago he planned to leave after Wednesday's regular-season finale, regardless of the manager next year.

Ozzie Guillen was released from his contract Monday and became manager of the Marlins on Wednesday. The 51-year-old Walker said his decision had nothing to do with Guillen's departure.

Walker's prized pupil as a hitting coach has been first baseman Paul Konerko. The White Sox have already announced they are bringing back pitching coach Don Cooper and first base coach Harold Baines with multiyear deals. Bench coach Joey Cora will join Guillen in Miami.
