After appearing in back to back World Series the Texas Rangers rewarded manager Ron Washington Monday afternoon with a two-year contract extension through the 2014 season.

Washington has a 427-373 record in in five seasons at the helm of the Rangers, his first managerial job. He is the first manager in major league history to increase his team’s win total in four consecutive seasons after his initial season with the club.

The Rangers had never won a playoff series in their franchise history before winning the last two American League pennants. Only five active managers have been with their current teams longer than Washington.

Washington has the third-longest tenure of any Rangers manager with 810 games managed. He trails Bobby Valentine, who managed the Rangers for 1,186 games from 1985-1992, and Johnny Oates, who managed them for 982 games in 1995-2001.
