HOUSTON (SportsRadio 610) -- Reid Ryan will no longer serve as the Astros president but will remain with the team in a new role, the Astros announced Thursday.

Ryan will be an executive advisor for business relations, while Jim Crane’s son Jared will assist his father and the executive team with baseball operations.

“With this new role, Ryan will have more opportunities to focus on his other business ventures while remaining an important part of the Astros organization,” the team said in a statement.

Ryan, the son of legendary pitcher Nolan Ryan, became the Astros president in 2013.

Nolan Ryan told Fox 26's Mark Berman he will not continue his role as an executive advisor to the Astros. 

"I will not be back with the club and will leave it at that," Ryan said, according to Berman.
