The Atlanta Braves have agreed to a two-year contract to retain pitching coach Roger McDowell through the 2015 season, the team announced on Saturday.

McDowell, who was reportedly one of the league's lowest-paid pitching coaches, had drawn interest from the division rival Phillies, who are looking to replace longtime coach Rich Dubee.

The 52-year-old McDowell has been with the Braves since October 2005, when he replaced legendary pitching coach Leo Mazzone. His contract expired on Friday.

McDowell previously worked as a minor league pitching coach for the Dodgers following a 12-year major-league career in which he served as a reliever for five different teams and won 70 total games.
