LOS ANGELES (AP) Dodgers manager Don Mattingly and his entire coaching staff will return for the upcoming season, which will be his fifth at the helm of the NL West champions.
He guided the club to its second straight division title and a 94-68 record before losing to St. Louis in the National League Division Series. The Dodgers' record has improved in each of Mattingly's first four seasons and his winning percentage of .547 ranks fourth in franchise history among managers with at least 500 games.
Also returning are: pitching coach Rick Honeycutt, first base coach Davey Lopes, third base coach Lorenzo Bundy, hitting coach Mark McGwire, and bench coach Tim Wallach. Others returning are bullpen coach Chuck Crim, assistant pitching coach Ken Howell, assistant hitting coach John Valentin, catching instructor Steve Yeager, and bullpen catchers Steve Cilladi and Rob Flippo.
