Sep 23, 2009, 4:32 PM EDT

The Braves announced Wednesday that Bobby Cox will manage the team for one more season in 2010 and then retire after what will be his 25th year running the team.
The 68-year-old Cox, who will return with his entire coaching staff, is currently in his 28th year as a major league manager. He has 2,408 victories, placing him fourth on the all-time list. He is, of course, first all-time in ejections.
Under the terms of his deal, the four-time Manager of the Year received a one-year extension for 2010 and a five-year consulting agreement through 2015.
