Ex-Giants great Matt Williams is joining the Oakland A's as third base coach, the club announced on Friday.

The five-time All-Star, who worked as a pre and postgame analyst for NBC Sports Bay Area on Giants broadcasts last season, previously managed the Washington Nationals in 2014 and 2015. Williams also had a pair of stints on the coaching staff with the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Williams and his new boss, manager Bob Melvin, have a track record. The pair were both Giants from 1987-88 and also shared a dugout from 2001-02 when Melvin was a Diamondbacks coach and Williams was a player.
