Coaching staff remains intact for next season

PHILADELPHIA -- Every member of the Phillies coaching staff will return in 2015.

The team said Wednesday that each coach is signed through next season. The Phillies announced late last month that they had invited every coach to return following a 73-89 campaign in Ryne Sandberg's first full season as manager.

Sandberg's staff includes bench coach Larry Bowa, pitching coach Bob McClure, hitting coach Steve Henderson, first-base coach Juan Samuel, third-base coach Pete Mackanin, bullpen coach Rod Nichols and assistant hitting coach John Mizerock.
