Craig Counsell will be the manager of the Brewers through 2023, after the team elected to extend his contract today.
“We are pleased to extend the contract of one of the best managers in the game today,” said President of Baseball Operations and General Manager David Stearns. “Over the last five seasons, Craig has led our team with a passion and intelligence that has resulted in some of the greatest success in the history of the franchise. I am confident in Craig’s abilities to lead, teach and compete as we continue our mission of bringing a championship to Wisconsin.”
Counsell is entering his sixth year at the helm of the Brewers.
The team has gone 405-381 (.515) under his leadership and is coming off consecutive postseason appearances for just the second time in franchise history (also 1981-82).
