(AP) Matt Williams wants to combine what he learned as a player with newfangled analytics as he takes charge of the Washington Nationals, his first job as a manager in the majors.

Says Williams: "Old school is old school, and that's great, but if you don't get along with the times, bro, you better just step aside."

Williams has been formally introduced as Washington's manager at a news conference Friday.

He will retain most of predecessor Davey Johnson's staff, including bench coach Randy Knorr and pitching coach Steve McCatty. Matt LeCroy replaces Jim Lett as bullpen coach, and Mark Weidemaier is being hired as a seventh coach, in charge of defensive positioning.

Weidemaier was with the Arizona Diamondbacks, where Williams was the third-base coach the last three seasons.
