Brewers fire Ron Roenicke, hire Craig CounsellSubmitted: 05/04/2015
MILWAUKEE - The Milwaukee Brewers decided to head in a different direction Monday.

The team hired Craig Counsell to replace manager Ron Roenicke.

The Brewers fired Roenicke after a 7-18 start to the season.

General Manager Doug Melvin said the late collapse last season was also a factor
Counsell has been Melvin's special assistant since 2012.

He went to Whitefish Bay High School in Milwaukee.

He played for the Brewers during six of his 15 Major League seasons.

He looks forward to the opportunity.

"To try to give the fans what they deserve, I'm going to try to come in here and win games and that's what I'm going to try to do, every single day we're going to try to win baseball games," said Counsell.

Counsell has won two World Series as a player.

He was also the MVP of the NCLS in 2001.

Counsell is excited to work with the Brewers players.

"I'm going to try to get these guys to play at the best of their abilities," Counsell said. "If we can do that we'll be good and that's my number one goal."
