NEW YORK (AP) -- Brian Cashman has signed a three-year contract with the New York Yankees, a day after his previous deal as general manager expired.

Cashman has been GM since February 1998, when he succeeded Bob Watson. The only general manager to serve longer with the Yankees is Ed Barrow from 1920 to 1945.

Under Cashman, the team has won four World Series titles and six AL pennants, finishing first in the AL East 11 times and advancing to the playoffs in 13 of 14 seasons.
