The Rangers have been looking for a new manager ever since Ron Washington resigned from the position on Sept. 5.
Texas finished in last place in the AL West with a 67-95 record, but went 14-8 during its final 22 games with Bogar serving as manager.
Washington had been the Rangers manager since November 2006. Last season, Texas won 91 games but failed to reach the playoffs.
