"There are [stories] out there that I turned down the Washington [third base] coaching job," Randolph said, according to the New York Post. "That's not true. [General manager] Jim [Bowden] and I spoke and he knew that I was looking for an opportunity to manage and he said he would get back to me. It was never offered, so there was nothing to turn down."
The Nationals announced on Friday the hiring of five new coaches, including Jim Riggleman as bench coach and Pat Listach as third base coach.
