Dave Clark to be new Brewers minor-league manager

Former First Base Coach Dave Clark has accepted a job with the Brewers as the manager of Double-A Huntsville. Clark was the interim manager of the Astros after Cecil Cooper was fired, and interviewed for the vacant position that Brad Mills got in time for the 2010 season. He was a candidate for the Pittsburgh managerial role that eventually went to Clint Hurdle in 2011. Clark had been with the Astros organization since 2005 and led Corpus Christi to its first ever Texas League championship in 2006.

And in other, former Astros managing minor-league teams, news: Phil Nevin will be the manager of the Triple-A Reno Aces.
