Roenicke will replace Lorenzo Bundy, who will stay on staff but move to the dugout and remain the team's outfield coordinator.
Roenicke was fired by the Brewers on May 3. Milwaukee was 7–18 at the time and began 4–17, the worst start by a National League team since 1997. Over his five seasons managing the Brewers, Roenicke posted a 342–331 record that included a postseason berth in 2011.
Roenicke played for the Dodgers from 1981 to ’83 and later began his coaching career with the franchise, working on the major-league coaching staff in ’92 and ’93, before holding various minor-league roles with the club until ’99.
Bundy has been the Dodgers’ third base coach since Nov. 2013 and has also held various minor-league roles for the franchise.
The Dodgers entered Monday 67–51, 2 1/2 games ahead of the San Francisco Giants for first place in the NL West.
