The Philadelphia Phillies announced they extended the contract of their manager Rob Thomson through the 2025 season. Back on June 5th, 2022, the Phillies fired Joe Girardi. At the time, Rob Thomson was the Phillies bench coach, he took over as the manager when the Phillies had a record of 22-29.

Since taking over as manager of the Phillies Rob Thomson has guided the Phillies to a 155-118 record with two consecutive playoff appearances. The Phillies reached the World Series in 2022 and lost to the Diamondbacks in seven games in the National League Championship Series this year.

Obviously, Rob Thomson would've never though he would end up in this situation. In fact, at one point Thomson was thinking about retiring. The year Rob Thomson took over as manager of the Phillies, which was 2022, Thomson had plans on retiring after the season ended. After this season, that changed a lot.

Rob Thomson now has plans to be the Phillies manager as long as they want him to be. From Phillies president of baseball operations, Dave Dombrowski: “I just wanted to make sure Topper wanted to add a year to his contract. We were very happy with the job that he did. Well deserved. That’s why we did it.”

The Phillies now have their manager locked up for at least the next two seasons. If Rob Thomson continues his pace, he will most definitely get the opportunity to be the Phillies manager for many more seasons. For now, Thomson knows he has a job with the Phillies for the next few years.
