Assistant general manager Miller leaving Reds

KANSAS CITY -- Reds assistant general manager Bob Miller will be leaving the club in October when his contract expires.

Miller, who confirmed the move to MLB.com, has purchased a business in Clearwater, Fla. He said he made the decision to leave a couple of months ago.

Former Reds GM Wayne Krivsky brought Miller aboard the organization as director of baseball administration, and he was promoted to assistant GM in June of that season. He added vice president to his title in December 2006.

Under current GM Walt Jocketty, Miller assisted in several areas -- including arbitration cases, contract negotiations and the intricate details of Major League rules and procedures.

A replacement for Miller has not been named by the Reds.
