It is not a big surprise that the Rangers General Manager Jon Daniels wants to conduct a thorough search for the next skipper, as he previously stated

"I think it’s really important for the organization to get this hire right. And for the fans and players and everyone else involved to feel like we were as thorough as possible, and when we announce our full-time manager to know that there was a lot that went into it.” (Jeff Wilson, Fort Worth Star-Telegram)"
