Via Bryan Hoch, Joe Girardi’s entire coaching staff will return next season. The contracts of Tony Pena, Rob Thomson, Mike Harkey, Dave Eiland, and Mick Kelleher had all expired after the season, however the team wanted to bring them all back and it seemed like just a matter of time before things got worked out. This isn’t much of a surprise, thought it’s good to get this wrapped up.
Meanwhile, Dave Miley and his entire Triple-A coaching staff will also return next season. Miley has guided the Scranton Yanks to the league’s best record (253-175) over the last three seasons.
