PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Pirates' front-office overhaul is complete.

The team said Monday it has fired general manager Neal Huntington, the third high-profile dismissal following a last-place finish in the NL Central.

Pittsburgh parted with manager Clint Hurdle on the last day of the regular season. Team president Frank Coonelly stepped away last week and will be replaced by former Pittsburgh Penguins executive Travis Williams.

Huntington arrived in Pittsburgh in 2007 and oversaw a franchise-wide makeover in which the club emerged from two decades of losing to reach the playoffs three straight times from 2013-15.
