Bench coach Trent Jewett, third base coach Rich Donnelly, outfield coach Andy Van Slyke and bullpen coach Mike Rojas will not be returning to the Mariners organization in 2016.
"I have a great deal of respect for Lloyd, as a person and as a manager," Dipoto said. "It is a credit to his professionalism that the team continued to play hard through the final day of the season. However, after extensive conversations it became clear to me that our baseball philosophies were not closely aligned. On behalf of the Mariners I want to thank Lloyd and his staff for their hard work the past two seasons, and I wish him the best moving forward."
McClendon was named Mariners manager on Nov. 5, 2013. He compiled a 163-161 record in two seasons in Seattle, including a 76-86 mark in 2015. He has a 499-607 career mark as a big league skipper with Pittsburgh (2001-2005) and Seattle (2014-2015).
