SHARE White Sox’ Williams mum on 2013 status

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — White Sox general manager Ken Williams is not commenting on a report that he will be promoted to the position of team president after the season, with assistant GM Rick moving up to the GM chair.

The move has been discussed and speculated for some time.

Williams is saying that his focus, and the team’s, is on winning a championship this season and that he won’t discuss his status until after the season. The Sox are in first place in the American League Central and have a chance to win a second world title under Williams as GM. The Sox won the World Series in 2005.

Hahn has been groomed to move up and has been interviewed for several GM openings. He has also turned down interview opportunities. Hahn is in his 12th season with the Sox.

Williams has been GM since after the 2000 season.
