Fired last month as the Red Sox’s first base coach, Ron Johnson has taken a job with the Orioles as their Triple-A manager.

He’ll manage at Triple-A Norfolk, with Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun reporting that the Orioles will reassign the man he’s replacing, Gary Allenson, to another role in the organization.

Prior to his two seasons as manager Terry Francona’s first base coach Johnson spent a decade managing and coaching for the Red Sox in the minors, including lots of success at Triple-A Pawtucket.

Connolly also notes that Johnson first joined the Red Sox in 2000, when their general manager was current Orioles general manager Dan Duquette.

    Good luck, Ron. I am glad that you got a position for 2012 that quickly!
