"When Mr. Castellini and I discussed our last contract, I told him that I would be ready to move on to an advisory role," Jocketty said.

Williams, 44, is the son of owner Tom Williams.

"I am excited for this opportunity," Williams said. "I see this as a continuation. It is not a takeover."

Jocketty, 64, has been involved with Major League Baseball for 41 years. the last 21 as a general manager. He has been the Reds' general manager since 2008.

"We decided to do this now with the general managers' meeting and the winter meetings coming up," Jocketty said. "Dick has been training for this job for the last 10 years."
