Best Answer

A team president concerns himself or herself with all aspects of the Baseball team, including the office personnel. A General Manager tends to deal only with the actual game side of the team, meaning hiring and firing managers, and drafting players and signing free agents.

A head coach in the NBA is the same as a manager in MLB. The general manager, in both MLB and the NBA, is the next level up from head coach/manager. The NBA general manager hires/fires the head coach and the MLB general manager hires/fires the manager.
