Aaron Boone will be back as the New York Yankees skipper.

Boone and the Yankees agreed to a three-year deal for him to return as manager, with a team option for 2025. YES Network first reported the contract before the team confirmed the news.

Boone’s contract with the Yankees expired after this season and in the two weeks since New York’s wild card loss to the Boston Red Sox, there was speculation Boone’s time in the Bronx expired. The Yankees have made the playoffs in all four seasons of his tenure, but without a World Series appearance (one ALCS in 2019).

"We have a person and manager in Aaron Boone who possesses the baseball acumen and widespread respect in our clubhouse to continue to guide us forward. As a team and as an organization, we must grow, evolve and improve," Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner said in a statement. "We need to get better. Period. I know Aaron fully embraces our expectations of success, and I look forward to drawing on his intelligence, instincts and leadership in pursuit of our next World Series championship."

Under Boone, the Yankees have won more than 60% of their regular-season games (328-218). They have finished second in the American League East in all but one year, winning the division in 2019.
